Cooperative excitation and many-body interactions in a cold Rydberg gas.
Experimental results on the dynamics and the counting statistics of Rydberg excitations of ultracold rubidium atoms both on and off resonance, which exhibit sub- and super-Poissonian counting statistics, respectively are presented.
Direct observation of ultrafast many-body electron dynamics in an ultracold Rydberg gas
This work demonstrates an experimental approach towards understanding quantum many-body systems by utilizing an ultracold Rydberg gas generated with a broadband picosecond laser pulse and follows the ultrafast evolution of its electronic coherence by time-domain Ramsey interferometry with attosecond precision.
Ultrafast Creation of Overlapping Rydberg Electrons in an Atomic BEC and Mott-Insulator Lattice.
An array of ultracold atoms in an optical lattice excited with a coherent ultrashort laser pulse to a state where single-electron wave functions spatially overlap signals the actual creation of electronic states with overlapping wave functions.
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.
Ultrafast energy exchange between two single Rydberg atoms on the nanosecond timescale
Rydberg atoms, with their giant electronic orbitals, exhibit dipole-dipole interaction reaching the GHz range at a distance of a micron, making them a prominent contender for realizing quantum
Accessing Rydberg-dressed interactions using many-body Ramsey dynamics
We demonstrate that Ramsey spectroscopy can be used to observe Rydberg-dressed interactions in a many-body system well within experimentally measured lifetimes, in contrast to previous research,
Simulation of quantum spin dynamics by phase space sampling of Bogoliubov-Born-Green-Kirkwood-Yvon trajectories
A numerical method, suitable for the simulation of the time evolution of quantum spin models of arbitrary lattice dimension, is presented. The method combines sampling of the Wigner function with
Many-body physics with individually controlled Rydberg atoms
Recent decades have witnessed great developments in the field of quantum simulation—where synthetic systems are built and studied to gain insight into complicated, many-body real-world problems.
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
