Ten Minute Talk:"High-fidelity multi-qubit gates with neutral atoms" by Harry Levine
Atomic, molecular, and optical systems often exhibit long-range interactions, which decay with distance r as a power law 1/r^alpha. In this talk, we will derive bounds on how quickly quantum information can propagate in such systems. We will then discuss applications of these bounds to numerous phenomena including classical and quantum simulation of quantum systems,...

Ten Minute Talk:"Probing for New Physics with Isotope Shifts" by Ian Counts
Diatomic molecules can be created and trapped in optical lattices at ultracold temperatures. This approach allows exquisite control over the internal and external quantum states of the molecules. Using optical techniques, we precisely measure the coupling between a series of ground and excited electronic states, which enables us to design magic lattice trapping for given...

Ten Minute Talk:"TBD" by Yu Liu
Francium, discovered eighty years ago by Marguerite Perey, is the heaviest alkaline atom. She succeeded in a search that started almost 150 years ago with the prediction shortly after the Periodic Table of Elements by Mendeleev of another alkali atom, the ekacaesium. Its isotope of longest half-life lasts only 20 minutes. The pioneer work at...
