**报告题目:** Quantum Computing with Atomic Qubits

**报告摘要：**Atoms are natural qubits for their fundamental property of being identical, and the consequent convenience in achieving scalable quantum control of large number of qubits. The atomic platform becomes particularly attractive with recent developments of optical tweezer and digital micromirror device techniques, where spatial resolved control of atoms is now feasible and advancing rapidly. This talk will present several protocols for atoms to perform quantum computing and solve difficult problems. I will describe universal quantum optimization architectures, by which atoms can be used for solving binary optimization, 3-SAT, and vertex-cover problems. This has wide applications in factorization, combinatorial optimization, and graph partitioning. Then I will present a quantum kernel function expansion algorithm, for finite temperature quantum simulations. In this algorithm, the temperature dependence of observables is expanded in terms of complete basis functions, and the expansion moments are obtained on a quantum circuit. This quantum algorithm has a natural realization considering Rydberg atoms.
