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.
