Through a combination of laser beams, we engineer a two-dimensional optical lattice of Mexican hat potentials able to host atoms in its ring-shaped wells. When tunneling can be ignored (at high laser intensities), we show that a well-defined qubit can be associated with the states of the atoms trapped in each of the rings. Each of these two-level systems can be manipulated by a suitable configuration of Raman laser beams imprinting a synthetic flux onto each Mexican hat cell of the lattice.

Abstract

Through a combination of laser beams, we engineer a two-dimensional optical lattice of Mexican hat potentials able to host atoms in its ring-shaped wells. When tunneling can be ignored (at high laser intensities), we show that a well-defined qubit can be associated with the states of the atoms trapped in each of the rings. Each of these two-level systems can be manipulated by a suitable configuration of Raman laser beams imprinting a synthetic flux onto each Mexican hat cell of the lattice. Overall, we believe that the system has the potential to form a scalable architecture for atomtronic flux qubits.
