Physics Colloquium: "Quantum sensing and simulation with light and matter"
Advances in quantum systems in novel domains -- with ensembles of atoms, spins in solids, superconducting circuits or even mechanical oscillators -- lead to intriguing new possibilities for observing and controlling quantum behavior in increasingly large systems. In this talk, I consider how we can use these systems for quantum-limited measurement and transduction of forces and fields. Furthermore, I will describe techniques that can take these systems into the regime of quantum simulation, communication, and computation. Where possible, I will highlight how these developments have the potential to improve our understanding of quantum many-body systems and to test the properties and behavior of such systems in a controlled setting.
