Hardware efficient quantum computing with neutral atom arrays

Jeff Thompson is the 2023 YQI Distinguished Lecturer In recognition of his pioneering work on quantum operations in Rydberg atom arrays and rare earth ions in solid state hosts, and new approaches to quantum error correction.

The Yale Quantum Institute Distinguished Lecturer recognizes a researcher whose work significantly advances quantum science, with emphasis on the areas of mesoscopic physics, nanoscience, quantum information, quantum computing and related theoretical and mathematical topics.

Annually, a YQI Distinguished Lecturer will be invited to visit the Yale Quantum Institute with a $1000 honorarium to deliver a lecture about a specific research result of great significance or a body of important work which has advanced our understanding in one or several sub-fields of quantum science.

Candidates eligible for the title of YQI Distinguished Lecturer must be within 12 years of receiving their PhD. All travel and accommodation costs will be covered by YQI in addition to the honorarium.
