Among leading platforms like trapped ions and superconducting qubits, neutral atoms in arrays of tightly-focused beams of light (“optical tweezers”) have seen great advances in the past two decades. In this talk, I will describe ongoing work at JILA where we have explored a new type of atom — two-electron atoms — for optical tweezer trapping. While the increased complexity of these atoms leads to challenges, they also offer new scientific opportunities by virtue of their rich internal degrees of freedom. Consequently, they have had broad impact on neutral atom quantum science, in areas ranging from quantum information processing to quantum metrology. I will report on my group’s progress in these areas.
