Abstract

We perform randomized benchmarking on neutral atomic quantum bits (qubits) confined in an optical lattice. Single qubit gates are implemented using microwaves, resulting in a measured error per randomized computational gate of 1.4(1) x 10−4 that is dominated by the system T2 relaxation time. The results demonstrate the robustness of the system, and its viability to more advanced quantum information protocols.
