A New Era of Quantum Materials Mastery and Quantum Simulators In and Out of Equilibrium

  title={A New Era of Quantum Materials Mastery and Quantum Simulators In and Out of Equilibrium},
  author={Dante M. Kennes and {\'A}ngel Rubio},
We provide a perspective on the burgeoning field of controlling quantum materials at will and its potential for quantum simulations in and out equilibrium. After briefly outlining a selection of key recent advances in controlling materials using novel high fluence lasers as well as in innovative approaches for novel quantum materials synthesis (especially in the field of twisted two-dimensional solids), we provide a vision for the future of the field. By merging state of the art developments we…
