Circuit emulation of bio-inspired dynamic and topological quantum systems
Project Description

Bio-inspired dynamic systems could have many applications in energy-efficient and powerful computation for tasks that are hard to be dealt with classical computers, such as cognitive learning and integer factorization. Topological quantum systems are fascinating thanks to their immunity to scattering and potential applications in nonreciprocal devices and quantum computing. Recently, electric circuits have been used to emulate bio-inspired dynamic and topological quantum systems due to various available circuit components with different characteristics for system Hamiltonian formulations. This project aims to study dynamic and quantum systems and then use electric circuits to emulate them.
