Probing Topological Spin Liquids on a Programmable Quantum Simulator
Quantum phases with topological order, such as quantum spin liquids, have been the focus of explorations for several decades. Such phases can be potentially exploited for the realization of robust quantum computation, as exemplified by the paradigmatic toric code model. In this talk, I will show how a programmable quantum simulator based on Rydberg atom arrays can be used to realize and probe quantum spin liquid states. Our observations open the door to the controlled experimental exploration of topological quantum matter, and could enable the investigation of new methods for topologically protected quantum information processing.
