Diatomic polar molecules are one of the most promising platforms of quantum computing due to their rich internal states and large electric dipole moments. Here, we propose entangling rotational states of MgF molecules in an optical tweezer array via strong electric dipole-dipole interactions. We employ two rotational states with the projection quantum number of the total angular momentum MF = 0 to maximize the dipole-dipole interaction with a given separation distance. The splitting of 1.27 kHz…

Hyperfine-resolved optical spectroscopy of the A2Π ← X2Σ+ transition in MgF.
We report on hyperfine-resolved laser spectroscopy of the A2Π ← X2Σ+ transition of magnesium monofluoride (MgF), relevant for laser cooling. We recorded 25 rotational transitions with an absolute


Realizing a lattice spin model with polar molecules
With the recent production of polar molecules in the quantum regime [1, 2], long-range dipolar interactions are expected to facilitate the understanding of strongly interacting many-body quantum
Sideband cooling of molecules in optical traps
Sideband cooling is a popular method for cooling atoms to the ground state of an optical trap. Applying the same method to molecules requires a number of challenges to be overcome. Strong tensor
Quantum computation with trapped polar molecules.
This design can plausibly lead to a quantum computer with greater, approximately > or = 10(4) qubits, which can perform approximately 10(5) CNOT gates in the anticipated decoherence time of approximately 5 s.
Extending Rotational Coherence of Interacting Polar Molecules in a Spin-Decoupled Magic Trap.
Spin-decoupled magic trapping is demonstrated, which cancels first-order and reduces second-order differential light shifts, and density-dependent coherence times are observed, which can be explained by dipolar interactions in the bulk gas.

Ultracold polar molecules as qudits
We discuss how the internal structure of ultracold molecules, trapped in the motional ground state of optical tweezers, can be used to implement qudits. We explore the rotational, fine and hyperfine
An optical tweezer array of ultracold molecules
By distinguishing between single and multiple molecules in the tweezers, the researchers were able to observe molecular collisions and observe ground-state collisions of laser-cooled molecules both in the presence and absence of near-resonant light.
