We propose a digital-analog quantum simulation of fermion-fermion scattering in the context of quantum field theories (QFTs) with superconducting circuits . This quantum technology provides strong coupling between superconducting qubits with a microwave resonator, and a continuum of bosonic modes, which in turn allows us to implement a discrete set of fermionic modes interacting with the bosonic continuum. This effort may represent a significant advance towards full-fledged quantum simulation of QFTs in a controllable system.
