The exaggerated properties of Rydberg atoms are exploited in a wide range of experiments in atomic physics as well as in quantum information science. The first two lectures of this series have shown how the very strong interactions of these atoms with microwave radiation are used in cavity quantum electrodynamics experiments to perform fundamental tests of quantum laws. In this third lecture, I will review experiments taking advantage of the very strong dipole-dipole coupling between Rydberg atoms to perform quantum logic operations and to study new states of quantum matter which may lead to promising applications.
