Driven-dissipative systems

Driven-dissipative systems, defined by the competition between a coherent drive and dissipation due to the coupling to the environment, have emerged as a versatile setting to investigate many-body physics. They are very naturally realized by a variety of emerging quantum platforms ranging from exciton-polariton fluids to circuit-QED architectures. We are broadly interested in these systems for (1) dissipative engineering of quantum states and phases, (2) identifying non-equilibrium phases and phase transitions, and (3) applications to quantum information science and technologies.
