In recent years, Rydberg atoms have been used for exploring a plethora of interesting quantum phenomena. Their strong, long-range and tunable interaction makes them good candidates for applications in quantum simulation and quantum computation with neutral atoms. Numerous experiments and proposals have also demonstrated the utility of Rydberg atoms in the quantum optics realm. Julius de Hond attempts to unify Rydberg atoms with an experimental platform that is interesting for its own sake: the atom chip.
