Event description: 
Slow thermalization in quantum simulators
The development of controllable and coherent quantum simulators has the potential to provide insights into a variety of quantum many-body systems. Such simulators are ideal for studying the non-equilibrium dynamics of quantum many-body systems. In this talk, I will discuss our recent works on using different types of quantum simulators to realize confined quasiparticles and their corresponding effects the non-equilibrium dynamics. I will also talk about the experimental observation of domain wall confinement in trapped-ion quantum systems. Finally, I will discuss that, in the strict confinement limit, the Hilbert space of a particular quantum many-body system can be fragmented into disconnected sub-sectors.
