Arrays of neutral atoms promise to enable a variety of goals across quantum science, including quantum information processing, metrology, and many-body physics. While there have been recent significant improvements in quantum control, coherence times, and entanglement generation, one outstanding limitation is the efficient implementation of dissipation or measurement. An exciting possibility to overcome this challenge involves the integration of the atom array with an optical cavity, whereby strong coupling between atoms and light enables fast mid-circuit measurement. Beyond quantum information processing applications (e.g. error correcting codes), engineering dissipation in interacting quantum systems opens the door to autonomous stabilization of many-body states as well as studies of entanglement transitions.
