Quantum physicists at Trinity, working alongside IBM Dublin, have successfully simulated super diffusion in a system of interacting quantum particles on a quantum computer. 

This is the first step in doing highly challenging quantum transport calculations on quantum hardware and, as the hardware improves over time, such work promises to shed new light in condensed matter physics and materials science. 

The work is one of the first outputs of the TCD-IBM predoctoral scholarship program which was recently established where IBM hires PhD students as employees while being co-supervised at Trinity.  The paper was published recently in the leading Nature journal NPJ Quantum Information.
