Quantum computation with single neutral atoms

Few-body phenomena in the field of single atoms array

Publications Read More

Our research fields are quantum computation with single neutral atoms and many-body phenomena in the ultracold quantum gases. The main novel results are listed as follows: We experimentally demonstrated the strong suppression of dephasing of single qubits by using multi-pulse sequences. Meanwhile, we transferred ingle qubits in the lattice with the aid of an auxiliary moving tweezer and investigated the influences on qubit fidelity. We investigated the matter wave interference of a single atom in the free space and directly measured the coherence length of single atoms wave packet. We investigated many-body nonequilibrium dynamics in the ultracold quantum gases. We built a new experimental setup towards dipolar quantum gases of erbium atoms. Ultracold erbium atomic system offers an opportunity to study many fascinating many-body phenomena due to its long-range and anisotropic dipole-dipole interaction.
