Long-range interacting systems

Quantum-optical setups permit the realization of many-body systems with interaction patterns that are rather unusual for other systems. For example, charged ions in electromagnetic traps, dipolar neutral atoms or molecules, or Rydberg atoms have interactions that decay as a powerlaw with distance.

In this project, we study the new phases of matter and unusual out-of-equilibrium dynamics that such interactions generate.
