"Trapped Ion Quantum Computing at Quantinuum

Speaker: Dr. Grahame Vittorini, Quantinuum

About the presenter

Dr. Grahame Vittorini is the Senior Manager for Quantinuum’s technical efforts in Golden Valley, MN. He received his doctorate from the Georgia Institute of Technology for his work on cryogenic ion trapping and molecular spectroscopy under Prof. Kenneth Brown’s tutelage. His postdoctoral research in Prof. Chris Monroe’s group at the University of Maryland demonstrated local (Mølmer-Sørensen) and remote (photonic) entanglement of 2 + 1 trapped ion qubits. He has been a part of Honeywell, and now Quantinuum, for 7 years and has had the privilege to lead the team that built and launched the commercial quantum computer H1-2.
