Rydberg atom arrays have emerged in the past few years as a promising resource for quantum simulation and quantum information processing. The ability to produce arbitrary spatial arrangements of neutral atoms is combined with the coherent control of their internal states, including coupling to Rydberg states to achieve strong interactions, to create an extremely versatile platform. Recent experiments on 1D arrays have highlighted the potential of this system for the preparation and study of ground states breaking different symmetries, the generation of large entangled states, and the implementation of high-fidelity quantum logic gates. I will present these results and report on the recent upgrade of our platform to control hundreds of atoms in arbitrary 2D geometries."
