Indium tin oxide films meet circular Rydberg atoms: prospects for novel quantum simulation schemes

14 May 2020 Meinert Florian Hölzl Christian Nebioglu Mehmet Ali D'Arnese Alessandro Karl Philipp Dressel Martin Scheffler Marc

Long-lived circular Rydberg atoms are picking up increasing interest for boosting coherence times in Rydberg-based quantum simulation. We elaborate a novel approach to stabilize circular Rydberg states against spontaneous and blackbody-induced decay using a suppression capacitor made from indium tin oxide (ITO) thin films, which combine reflection of microwaves with transparency in the visible spectral range...
