Over the last years, a novel platform for quantum simulation of spin Hamiltonians, using arrays of single atoms held in optical tweezers and excited to Rydberg levels to make them interact, has emerged. In this seminar, I’ll explain how we can now create arrays of up to 200 individually-controlled atoms with almost arbitrary geometries in 1,2 and even 3 dimensions, and illustrate the quantum simulation of Ising and XY spin Hamiltonians on a variety of recent experiments performed in our lab.
