Paper Abstract

Based on feedback control techniques and our realization of nearly complete transferring cold cesium (Cs) atoms from a magneto-optical trap (MOT) to a far-off-resonance microscopic optical tweezer, we investigated the possibility for nearly deterministic loading of a single Cs atom in a MOT and in a microscopic optical tweezer. We combined feedback controls on the gradient of the MOT quadrupole magnetic field (QMF) and on blue-detuned light-assisted collisions (LAC) of confined cold atoms in the tweezer. Using active feedback on QMF of the MOT, we have achieved ~ 98% of probability of single atom loading in a MOT. In a microscopic optical tweezer, by combining the feedback controls on the QMF and the LAC, we finally achieved ~ 95.2% of probability of single atom loading in the tweezer. This two-path feedback control scheme may be extended to load a small-size 2D tweezer array with exact single atom trapped in each site simultaneously. This is very important and promising to implement an addressable multiple-qubit system for demonstrating quantum register and quantum processor.
