Optical Tweezer Arrays with Ytterbium Atoms for Studying Quantum Phenomena
A neutral Rydberg atom tweezer array is a promising platform for quantum computation. In this study, featuring its metastable excited state, an array of single ytterbium atoms trapped in micro-optical tweezers was constructed. This overcomes many problems in conventional systems using alkali atoms.
