Recently, our former doctoral student and postdoctoral researcher Maximilian Prüfer (Twitter: @max_pruefer) wrote his first science communication article. He describes the general ideas behind quantum simulators from an experimentalist´s point-of-view. It is published in the Many Body Physics-Blog with whom the CRC1225 ISOQUANT collaborates on science communication. The article aims at being accessible to non-physicists and even non-scientists. “My collaboration with Many Body Physics started after an exciting and insightful seminar about science communication from NAWIK which was organized by the CRC1225 ISOQUANT in February 2021. I wanted to write a piece like that already for a long time. The workshop provided me with new skills and the momentum for turning the idea into an article.“
