This article proposes the first discrete-time implementation of Rydberg quantum walk in multi-dimensional spatial space that could ideally simulate different classes of topological insulators. Using distance-selective exchange-interaction between Rydberg excited atoms in an atomic-array with dual lattice-constants, the new setup operates both coined and coin-less models of discrete-time quantum walk (DTQW). Here, complicated coupling tessellations are performed by global laser that exclusively excite the site at the anti-blockade region. The long-range interaction provides a new feature of designing different topologically ordered periodic boundary conditions. Limiting the Rydberg population to two excitations, coherent QW over hundreds of lattice sites and steps are achievable with the current technology. These features would improve the performance of this quantum machine in running the quantum search algorithm over topologically ordered databases as well as diversifying the range of topological insulators that could be simulated.
Atomic lattices are the pioneering quantum platform in terms of scalability. An ideal tool to perform complicated quantum operations in an atomic system is provided by the laser-excited Rydberg atoms. This paper proposes the implementation of multiple time-dependent connectivity tessellations in a 3D lattice of dimers that run coined and coinless DTQW. The scheme operates by a simple Rydberg population rotation scheme via a global laser, shining on the lattice. The desired operation is performed via distance-selective spin-exchange interaction between Rydberg atoms in a holographically designed lattice structure. Switching among different coupling tessellations is controlled by tuning the laser’s energy to form a resonant interaction exclusively between the targeted sites. The long-range interaction allows engineering the periodic boundary conditions resulting in DTQW over topological surfaces like torus and Mobius stripe.
Studying a wide range of decoherence sources, the proposed scheme preserves the coherence over hundreds of lattice sites and steps. This major improvement is obtained by suppressing the population of the short-lived Rydberg states to two atoms. Finally, based on the mentioned advances, the paper address different classes of Rydberg Floquet topological insulators with an experimental breakthrough on the scale that these quantum materials could be realized.
