Immanuel Bloch named Clarivate Citation Laureate

Immanuel is one of 20 scientists to be named this year's Clarivate Citation Laureate, being one of four recipients in the physics category to receive the award for his "ground-breaking research on quantum many-body systems using ultracold atomic and molecular gases, opening the way to quantum simulations of 'artificial solids'". more

Evaporation of microwave-shielded polar molecules to quantum degeneracy

Ultracold polar molecules offer strong electric dipole moments and rich internal structure, which makes them ideal building blocks to explore exotic quantum matter, implement novel quantum information schemes more

Cavity-Enhanced Optical Lattices for Scaling Neutral Atom Quantum Technologies to Higher Qubit Numbers

We demonstrate a cavity-based solution to scale up experiments with ultracold atoms in optical lattices by an order of magnitude over state-of-the-art free-space lattices. Our two-dimensional (2D) optical lattices are created by power-enhancement cavities with large mode waists of 489(8)μm and allow us to trap ultracold strontium atoms at a lattice depth of 60μK by using only 80mW of input light per cavity axis. We characterize these lattices using high-resolution clock spectroscopy and resolve carrier transitions between different vibrational levels. more

Quantum computing startup "planqc" founded to build highly scalable quantum computer

planqc will develop a highly scalable quantum computer operating at room temperature and based on atoms trapped in optical lattices. planqc is building quantum computers that store information in individual atoms – nature's best qubits. Quantum information is processed by arranging these qubits in highly scalable arrays and manipulating them with precisely controlled laser pulses. planqc’s unique combination of quantum technologies is the fastest way to scale to thousands of qubits, a prerequisite for industry-relevant quantum advantage. more

Realizing the symmetry-protected Haldane phase in Fermi–Hubbard ladders

Topology in quantum many-body systems has profoundly changed our understanding of quantum phases of matter. The model that has played an instrumental role in elucidating these effects is the antiferromagnetic spin-1 Haldane chain. more
