New paper: Combining atom arrays with photonic chips

Check out our new work on combining atom arrays with photonic chips on arXiv. We show atom array technology such as loading large tweezer arrays, single-shot fluorescence images, and rearrangement works in combination with photonic chips. For this we introduce a new background-free imaging technique completely eliminates any background from laser light that scatters on the chip. We show that we can move atoms onto nanophotonic cavities with only a few hundred nanometer distance. Congratulations to Shankar and Noah, who led this work!
