In the endeavour of constructing a quantum computer, the biggest challenge is to control the dynamics of a large ensemble of identical quantum systems at the single-particle level in a decoherence-free manner. I will present our approach of holding atoms trapped in an array of optical tweezers, which will eventually allow for the deterministic control of individual atoms. Furthermore, I’m going to show how to interface single atoms and photons in high-finesse optical cavities. Together, these two approaches constitute the key elements of a scalable quantum network, which one could use for one-way quantum computing or for quantum simulations of complex systems.
