Detailed Balance of Thermalization Dynamics in Rydberg-Atom Quantum Simulators.
This work finds that thermalization of an isolated many-body quantum state can be described by a master equation and demonstrates the detailed balance in a thermalization dynamics that does not require coupling to baths or postulated randomness.
Accurate Mapping of Multilevel Rydberg Atoms on Interacting Spin-1/2 Particles for the Quantum Simulation of Ising Models.
In these conditions, the experimental dynamics observed after a quench is in good agreement with numerical simulations of spin-1/2 Ising models in systems with up to 49 spins, for which numerical simulations become intractable.
Rydberg-dressing of atoms in optical lattices
We study atoms in optical lattices whose electronic ground state is off-resonantly coupled to a highly excited state with strong binary interactions. We present a time-dependent treatment of the
Quantum simulation of 2D antiferromagnets with hundreds of Rydberg atoms.
This work uses programmable arrays of individual atoms trapped in optical tweezers, with interactions controlled by laser excitation to Rydberg states, to implement an iconic many-body problem-the antiferromagnetic two-dimensional transverse-field Ising model, and demonstrates that this platform can be readily used to address open questions in many- body physics.
Nonadiabatic motional effects and dissipative blockade for Rydberg atoms excited from optical lattices or microtraps.
The laser excitation of Rydberg atoms in ultracold gases is often described assuming that the atomic motion is frozen during the excitation time. We show that this frozen gas approximation can break
Glassy Dynamics in a Disordered Heisenberg Quantum Spin System
Understanding the dynamics of strongly interacting disordered quantum systems is one of the most challenging problems in modern science, due to features such as the breakdown of thermalization and
Relaxation of an Isolated Dipolar-Interacting Rydberg Quantum Spin System.
A prototypical spin system formed by ultracold atoms prepared in two Rydberg states with different orbital angular momenta is realized by coupling these states with a resonant microwave driving, and an intrinsically quantum component to the relaxation attributed to primordial quantum fluctuations is identified.
Robust quantum logic in neutral atoms via adiabatic Rydberg dressing
We study a scheme for implementing a controlled-Z (CZ) gate between two neutral-atom qubits based on the Rydberg blockade mechanism in a manner that is robust to errors caused by atomic motion. By
Time domain Ramsey interferometry with interacting Rydberg atoms
We theoretically investigate the dynamics of a gas of strongly interacting Rydberg atoms subject to a time-domain Ramsey interferometry protocol. The many-body dynamics is governed by an Ising-type
