Rydberg atoms in optical tweezers are great for quantum technologies! We are building the first Italian platform based on programmable arrays of optically trapped neutral atoms. We use strontium, which provides states with long coherence time and state-selective transitions enabling advanced manipulation and readout schemes for novel approaches to quantum simulation and quantum computation.

Blue laser for Strontium cooling and imaging

We have completed the optical setup for a 461 nm laser source that will be employed for slowing down, capturing in a 3D MOT and imaging Strontium atoms in the FloRydberg platform.

Blue MOT, we will be there soon!
