Fermionic quantum computer
Fermionic quantum computer: By loading ultracold Sr atoms in highly controllable optical potentials, we aim to build a fermionic quantum simulator and computer for chemistry. Also, using two electronic states of Sr, we can realize a qubit based computer.

New states of matter
New states of matter: By simulating paradigmatic Hamiltonians and Liouvillians, we will realize new dynamics and states of strongly correlated topological matter.

California Institute for Quantum Emulation
CAIQuE brings together researchers from five UC campuses with a joint focus on driving advances in research, education, and training in the fast growing field of quantum emulation.
The Barreiro Lab is building two ultracold Strontium experiments aimed at (i) creating new states of matter and realizing a (fermionic) quantum computer and (ii) realizing quantum sensors for fundamental physics and applications.
Our work is sponsored by grants from the Regents of the University of California, the Sloan Foundation and DARPA.
