The Quantum Innovators in Computer Science and Mathematics workshop brings together promising young researchers working on theoretical aspects of quantum information and computation in computer science and mathematics. Guests are invited for a four-day conference aimed at exploring the frontier of our field.
Susan Clark, Sandia National Laboratories
Sandia National Laboratories is a multidisciplinary National Laboratory in the United States dedicated to developing advanced technologies. Here, I will explain the ongoing work in quantum information science using trapped ions. In particular, I will describe requirements of surface ion traps fabricated at Sandia’s MESA facility. Additionally, I will discuss results obtained using these traps relevant to building a quantum information platform, including ion shuttling, electric field control, and high-fidelity quantum operations.
