Ryd-Yb tweezer array

Quantum computing and quantum simulation with fermionic 171Yb

Neutral-atom arrays have gained increasing importance in the development of quantum computing architectures. More recently, high-fidelity single- and two-qubit operations have also been demonstrated with
alkaline-earth(-like) atoms AELA, which offer unique opportunities for high-fidelity detection via shelving, trapping of Rydberg states and high-fidelity single-photon Rydberg excitations. As part of the Munich Quantum Valley (MQV) we are currently building a new tweezer-array platform, where single fermionic 171Yb atoms are trapped in optical tweezers and interactions are induced via highly-excited Rydberg states.
