Quantum simulators are artificial and highly controllable quantum systems mimicking and simulating the complex behaviour of real materials. The talk will start by a review of our founding results on the simulations of Mott to superfluid phase transitions in coupled cavities doped with two level systems and the applications in measurements based quantum computation. Photonic simulation of quantum spin models, Fractional Hall effect, and many-body entanglement in dissipative cavity arrays will be introduced. Our recent results on the simulation of spin-charge separation using photons will be discussed throughout the remaining part of the talk. If time permits, our ongoing work towards the realization of the sine-Gordon model and the “pinning transition” in a nonlinear fibre will be presented.
