The Rydberg Computers workshop, which will take place on March 5, 2023 in Las Vegas, is part of the annual March Meeting event of the American Physical Society, and has as its subject matter particular quantum devices based on what represents a recent entrant to quantum computing architectures: neutral atoms trapped in near-arbitrary lattice geometries via laser tweezers.

These technologies are highly scalable and already can scale to chipsets of hundreds of qubits, with coherence times supporting tens of single-qubit Rabi oscillations and coherence lengths spanning the entire system size. These characteristics make trapped neutral atoms prime platforms for studying new ways of encoding quantum algorithms and testing the limits and boundaries of quantum information processing.

The Rydberg Computers tutorial is designed to provide the tools needed to promote independent research on Rydberg atom devices, quantum phases and phase transitions, lattice gauge theories, quantum dynamics, and quantum computing/information processing applications. The focus is on large-scale neutral-atom quantum simulators, including their uses and limitations, as well as fundamentals and state-of-the-art results. Participants will also have the opportunity to access and use QuEra Computing’s neutral atom processor via the cloud.

Harvard University, Princeton University, Caltech (California Institute of Technology) and neutral-atom quantum computer company QuEra will partecipate in the tutorial. As mentioned, QuEra will provide attendees with the basics of running algorithms on their Aquila neutral-atom quantum processor, explain the principles of its programmability, and provide an overview of recent results and research prospects.

The March Meeting of the American Physical Society brings together scientists and students from around the world to celebrate the frontiers of physics, pave the way for new research, and establish collaborations among universities, industries, and major research centers.
