Quantum simulation in the presence of controllable dissipation
Dr. Davide Rossini de la University of Pisa
We discuss two quantum simulation schemes in which the coupling to an external bath may give rise to novel and interesting many-body physics. Namely, we first address the effect of local Markovian baths on the quantum annealing dynamics of an Ising-like chain: deviations from adiabaticity may display a nonmonotonic trend as a function of the annealing time, as a result of the competition between nonadiabatic effects and dissipative processes. Secondly, we provide a framework to induce persistent currents through the coupling with a structured reservoir which generates nonreciprocity, without the need of any applied gauge field.
