In this talk I will introduce the concept of unphysical operations and I will show how to implement them in standard quantum platforms. Unphysical operations represent a new way of interacting with the simulated dynamics enhancing the toolbox of available operations and opening the door to the study of quantum protocols in this new framework. In the second part of the talk, I will show how a trapped ion setup can be used to simulate processes as creation and annihilation of particles paving the way to the quantum simulation of quantum field theories in perturbative and nonperturbative regimes.
