Abstract: This chapter focuses on quantum simulators realized through two-electron atoms, with particular attention to quantum simulators based on Yb. Details of some relevant physical models which can be efficiently simulated through these atomic systems are given, focusing in particular on two recent experiments: quantum simulation of multi-spin Luttinger liquids, and realization of Hall-like chiral systems, where edge states are detected, along with their associated chiral currents.
