Abstract

Quantum control methodology is presented to design many-body spin states in a spin chain of Rydberg atoms using laser pulses and a magnetic field. A two-photon ladder-type configuration is implemented, which is advantageous due to the combined action of the one-photon and two-photon detunings as control parameters. Many-body spin states are designed consisting of an ensemble of spins encoded in sublevels of Rydberg states and coupled via the van der Waals interactions.
