Wireless network control of interacting Rydberg atoms

We have submitted Wireless network control of interacting Rydberg atoms, which is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Rick van Bijnen, Edgar Vredenbregt and Servaas Kokkelmans. You can find a preprint of the article on arXiv. Ultimately, the article appeared in Physical Review Letters as Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 163001.

Wireless network control of interacting Rydberg atoms


We identify a relation between the dynamics of ultra-cold Rydberg gases in which atoms experience a strong dipole blockade and spontaneous emission, and a stochastic process that models certain wireless random-access networks. We then transfer insights and techniques initially developed for these wireless networks to the realm of Rydberg gases, and explain how the Rydberg gas can be driven into crystal formations using our understanding of wireless networks. Notably, we also propose a method to determine Rabi frequencies (laser intensities) such that particles in the Rydberg gas are excited with specified target excitation probabilities.

Jaron Sanders received in 2012 M.Sc. degrees in Mathematics and Physics from the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, as well as a PhD degree in Mathematics in 2016. After he obtained his PhD degree, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Jaron Sanders then worked as an assistant professor at the Delft University of Technology, and now works as an assistant professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests are applied probability, queueing theory, stochastic optimization, stochastic networks, wireless networks, and interacting (particle) systems.
