Abstract:

We employ learning algorithms, optical and terahertz pulse shaping and ultrafast laser techniques to control quantum coherence in Rydberg atom wave packet quantum data registers. Our goals are to discover efficient ways to limit decoherence in these systems, execute arbitrary unitary operations and projection operations, and produce and probe quantum entanglement. Rydberg atoms have many of the same quantum properties of other systems that have been proposed for processing and storing quantum information, and so they are models for techniques that could be employed in proposed quantum computers.
