"Rydberg atoms arrays for applications with QuEra 256-qubit machine"

Tommaso Macri , Harvard University
[Host: Peter Schauss]

Rydberg atom arrays have emerged in the past few years as a promising resource for quantum technologies. The ability to produce arbitrary spatial arrangements of neutral atoms is combined with the coherent control of their internal states, including coupling to Rydberg states to achieve strong interactions, to create an extremely versatile platform. Recent experiments on arbitrary two-dimensional arrays have highlighted the potential of this system for high-fidelity quantum simulation of exotic phases of matter and for optimization problems. I will present prototypical examples of theoretical and experimental efforts to tackle such problems with Aquila, QuEra 256-qubit machine.
