LASSP & AEP Seminar by Prof. Jeff Thompson (Princeton University)

Quantum computing with Yb Rydberg atoms
Neutral atom quantum computing is a rapidly developing field. Exploring new atomic species, such as alkaline earth atoms, provides additional opportunities for cooling and trapping, measurement, qubit manipulation, high-fidelity gates and quantum error correction. In this talk, I will present recent results from our group on implementing high-fidelity gates on nuclear spins encoded in metastable 171Yb atoms [1], including mid-circuit detection of gate errors that give rise to leakage out of the qubit space, using erasure conversion [2,3]. I will conclude by discussing several new directions including spectroscopy and modeling of 171Yb Rydberg states and interactions, and the construction of high-speed modulators for local gate addressing [4].
