Quantum computing is a new paradigm of information processing where quantum effects like entanglement lead to computing capabilities unmatched by any classical technology. Realizing a system of a large number of well-controlled, coherent qubits, which is the prerequisite for quantum computation, is an outstanding challenge. Arrays of neutral trapped atoms offer an attactive approach to overcoming scalability and control challenges that other platforms face. In the Bernien Lab, we develop the technology to assemble and control large quantum processors consisting of arrays of atomic qubits.
