The Digital Materials Laboratory (DML) is one of four laboratories in the
Single Quantum Dynamics Research Group, at the
Advanced Science Institute (ASI) of
The DML is headed by Professor Franco Nori (profile) who is also a professor at the University of Michigan.
The DML is located on the RIKEN Wako-shi Campus, close to Tokyo, Japan.
We perform theoretical studies of complex dynamics in materials. We use physically-motivated models to make predictions which can be tested experimentally and are useful to better understand the observed phenomena. We are currently working on several projects, including: quantum computing (superconducting Josephson-junction qubits, scalable quantum circuitry, improved designs for the control, coherent oscillations, and readout), vortex dynamics in superconductors, new fluxtronics devices, complex collective phenomena, nano-magnetism and spintronics. We are also working on biologically-inspired solid-state devices that can control the motion of quanta.
