Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We show, with numerical verification, how an ensemble of Rubidium atoms can be made to behave like a single particle with only two energy levels, i.e., a quantum bit, by using Rydberg-interaction assisted light-shift blockade.
