Harnessing electrons to make synthetic dimensions

A synthetic dimension is a degree of freedom encoded into a set of internal or external states that can mimic the motion of a particle in a real-space lattice potential. They are powerful tools for quantum simulation, opening exciting possibilities.

Recently, physicists at Rice University figured out how to control electrons in gigantic Rydberg atoms with such accuracy they can create…
