Physical Review A. Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
A terahertz pulse was designed to implement a search algorithm on a quantum data register. Phase information stored in a Rydberg wave packet was optimally retrieved through the interaction with the pulse. Careful attention was paid to the smooth switch on and switch off of the terahertz pulse. Furthermore, the possibility of designing an optimal pulse that can achieve not only a desired target state of an atom, but also implement a desired algorithm was shown.
