Microscopy of strontium atoms with optical tweezers and lattices

Presenting Author: Matthew Norcia, University of Colorado JILA
Contributing Author(s): Aaron Young, Adam Kaufman

I will present progress towards a new microscopy platform for quantum science that uses strontium atoms confined in a combination of optical tweezers and lattices. This platform will enable us to take advantage of the rich internal structure of strontium, including long-lived optically excited states and narrow-linewidth transitions, the flexibility and rapid cycle time of optical tweezers for creating low-entropy states, and the well-defined potentials provided by optical lattices for enabling high-fidelity coherent evolution. We intend to apply this new platform to problems in quantum simulation and computation.
