Quantum computing with neutral atoms

Presented by David Weiss, Penn State University

I will present our approach to making a quantum computer using atoms in a 3D optical lattice. I will focus on our recent demonstration of perfect lattice filling in 4x4x3 and 5x5x2 arrays, which involved an experimental realization of Maxwell's demon. I will also describe how we have accomplished high fidelity single qubit gates (0.997) and high fidelity lossless state detection (0.9994).
