Decoherence in microscopic two-level systems and in analog quantum simulators

Zanker, Sebastian

Quantum simulation is a promising field for first applications of quantum computers.
In the first part of this work we study effects of decoherence in analog quantum simulators using many-body methods for systems out of equilibrium.
In the second part we study the interplay between two important sources of decoherence, namely quasiparticle excitations in superconductors and low-energy excitations in amorphous layers. The latter are described within the phenomenological tunneling-system model.
