Quantum simulation and computing with arrays of single Rydberg atoms

Over the last years, a new platform for quantum technologies has emerged. It is based on arrays of single atoms arranged with almost arbitrary geometries, and made to interact by exciting them to Rydberg states.

The latest issue of EurophysicsNews includes an article authored by Daniel Barredo (CINN) and Thierry Lahaye (Institut d’Optique-CNRS) describing the experimental methods used in this field, which compared with other platforms, such as trapped ions or superconducting qubits is quite competitive for applications such as quantum simulation of magnetism.
