This project, supported by a Royal Academy of Engineering
Senior Research Fellowship and M Squared Lasers
, seeks to develop a new experiment focused on creating dual-species arrays of Cs and
Rb for quantum error correction. This is integrated within a 4K closed-cycle cryostat to obtain extended trap lifetime for scaling to large numbers of qubits, and will focus on exploiting long-range dipole interactions between Rydberg
states of each species to enable mid-circuit, non-destructive readout and generation of topologically protected logical qubits as a route towards fault tolerant digital quantum computing.
