An experimental and theoretical study of neutral atom qubits for use in a quantum computing device was performed. Experimental achievements include loading and detection of single Rb87 atoms in optical traps, demonstration of fast 1.4 MHz Rabi rotations between ground hyoperfine states, measurement of 1 ms T2 time using Ramsey interferometry, and observation of partial Rydberg blockade by two-photon excitation to levels with n47.
