Progress on the Testbed Ion Trap Networking Experiment
Abstract: Trapped atomic ions are a leading quantum computing architecture. In the IQUIST testbed space, our group is currently working on building an ion trap experiment to explore distributed computing and quantum networking. Our experiment will involve a multizone ion trap chip capable of trapping several ions in each region. Ions in different zones will be entangled using remote entanglement, and subsequent one and two-qubit gates will enable exploring distributed computing and quantum repeater architectures. In this talk, I will discuss experimental progress and our plans for first measurements.
