Demonstration of a Rydberg blockade CNOT gate between two neutral atoms

University of Wisconsin

I will present experimental data demonstrating a two-atom CNOT gate at an atomic separation of 10 microns using Rydberg state mediated interactions. We also show that the CNOT gate can be used to create two-atom entangled states. In addition to quantum gates the long range Rydberg interaction appears well suited for generating many particle entanglement, and deterministic quantum interfaces between matter and photonic qubits. I will discuss some examples of these quantum information applications.
