We propose to create superposition states of over 100 Strontium atoms being in a ground state or metastable optical clock state, using the Kerr-type interaction due to Rydberg state dressing in an optical lattice. The two components of the superposition can differ by of order 300 eV in energy, allowing tests of energy decoherence models with greatly improved sensitivity. We take into account the effects of higher-order nonlinearities, spatial inhomogeneity of the interaction, decay from the…

Entangled state fusion with Rydberg atoms
A scheme for preparation of large-scale entangled GHZ states and W states with neutral Rydberg atoms with prominent advantage is that both two multiparticle GHz states and two multiparticles W states can be fused in this model, especially the success probability for fusion ofGHZ states can reach unit.

This paper is a proposal for the generation of many-body entangled state in atomic and mechanical systems. Application of strong Rydberg dressing interaction and fast bifurcation scheme in an
Single-photon source based on Rydberg exciton blockade
We propose to implement a new kind of solid-state single-photon source based on the recently observed Rydberg blockade effect for excitons in cuprous oxide. The strong interaction between excitons in
Rydberg noisy dressing and applications in making soliton molecules and droplet quasicrystals
The current advances in the field of ultra-cold atoms and atomic traps recall new controllable long-range interactions. These interactions are expected to extend the range of realizable quantum
Conditional STIRAP based on Rydberg blockade: entanglement fidelities in three- and four-level schemes
This paper investigates the generation of quantum entanglement by means of conditional stimulated Raman adiabatic passage (STIRAP) based on Rydberg blockade. The paper compares the entanglement
Theory of long-range interactions for Rydberg states attached to hyperfine-split cores
The theory is developed for one and two atom interactions when the atom has a Rydberg electron attached to a hyperfine split core state. This situation is relevant for some of the rare earth and
Long-lived Bell states in an array of optical clock qubits
The generation of long-lived entanglement on an optical clock transition is a key requirement to unlocking the promise of quantum metrology. Arrays of neutral atoms constitute a capable quantum

Quantum technologies exploit entanglement to revolutionize computing, measurements, and communications. This has stimulated the research in different areas of physics to engineer and manipulate
Discrete-Time Quantum-Walk & Foloquete Topological Insulators via Distance-Selective Rydberg-Interaction
This article proposes the first discrete-time implementation of Rydberg quantum walk in multi-dimensional spatial space that could ideally simulate different classes of topological insulators. Using
Fast multi-qubit gates by adiabatic evolution in interacting excited state manifolds.
Quantum computing and quantum simulation can be implemented by concatenation of one- and two-qubit gates and interactions. For most physical implementations, however, it may be advantageous to


however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
