CQT researchers land on a magic wavelength for scaling atomic arrays

The group of Principal Investigator Loh Huanqian has become the first to use a class of ‘magic wavelengths’ for atom-trapping first predicted to exist over a decade ago. They used D1 magic wavelength optical tweezers to scale up their atom array numbers to an order of magnitude larger than was possible before. These findings are reported in Physical Review Research.

Researchers propose tool to extract better performance from noisy quantum computers

CQT PhD graduates Tobias Haug and Kishor Bharti and their collaborator demonstrate a tool that measures the power of parametrised quantum circuits, a building block of algorithms for quantum computers. The new approach could pave the way for improved circuit design. Better circuits could help extract better performance overall.
