# Gauge-Symmetry Protection Using Single-Body Terms

@article{Halimeh2021GaugeSymmetryPU, title={Gauge-Symmetry Protection Using Single-Body Terms}, author={Jad C. Halimeh and Haifeng Lang and Julius Mildenberger and Zhang Jiang and Philipp Hauke}, journal={PRX Quantum}, year={2021} }

Quantum-simulator hardware promises new insights into problems from particle and nuclear physics. A major challenge is to reproduce gauge invariance, as violations of this quintessential property of lattice gauge theories can have dramatic consequences, e.g., the generation of a photon mass in quantum electrodynamics. Here, we introduce an experimentally friendly method to protect gauge invariance in $\mathrm{U}(1)$ lattice gauge theories against coherent errors in a controllable way. Our…
