"Rydberg atoms in arrays of optical tweezers offer a new perspective for the quantum simulation
of many body systems. In this talk, I will give a brief overview about this platform and describe
our efforts to control Rydberg interactions to explore different types of Hamiltonians. Through
recent experimental results, I will illustrate the implementation of the Ising [1] and XXZ [2]
Hamiltonians to study quantum magnetism. Finally, I will show our first steps to scale up the
atom numbers in our platform by using a cryogenic environment [3].
