Title: Quantum Information With Neutral Atoms as Quibits
Published: July 01, 2003
Abstract: One of the essential features of a quantum computer is a quantum register of well-characterized qubits. Neural atoms in optical lattices are a natural candidate for such a register. We have demonstrated a pattern loading technique that can be used to load atoms into large arrays of tightly confined but optically resolvable lattice sites. We have also seen preliminary indications of the Mott-insulator transition, which provides a route for single-atom initialization of the individually addressable single atoms, a system, which provides a starting point for further quantum computation studies.
