Quantum simulators are future technologies aimed at determining the properties of physical systems that are difficult to calculate on classical computers, and are anticipated to be among the first applications of quantum information technologies. We are experimentally investigating a new quantum simulator to predict the properties of quantum materials based on the spin of individual holes in solids, leveraging the recently capacity to engineer hole spin coherence times and the ability to tune the Hubbard interactions of hole spins.
