Quantum computing and quantum simulation can be implemented by concatenation of one- and two-qubit gates and interactions. For most physical implementations, however, it may be advantageous to explore state components and interactions that depart from this universal paradigm and offer faster or more robust access to more advanced operations on the system. In this article, we show that adiabatic passage along the dark eigenstate of excitation exchange interactions can be used to implement fast multiqubit Toffoli (C-k-NOT) and fan-out (C-NOTk) gates. This mechanism can be realized by simultaneous excitation of atoms to Rydberg levels, featuring resonant exchange interaction. Our theoretical estimates and numerical simulations show that these multiqubit Rydberg gates are possible with errors below 1% for up to 20 qubits. The excitation exchange mechanism is ubiquitous across experimental platforms, and we show that similar multiqubit gates can be implemented in superconducting circuits.
