Phys10 Undergraduate Seminar Series - on Teams

Roland Marrero, Post-Doctoral Fellow, IQC

Quantum physics promises a large enhancement in the performance of some next-generation devices, like sensors and computers. Such improvements help coping with the ever-more demanding tasks that we, the users, want them to carry out. Trapped ions offer a mature platform for diverse quantum applications, but this scheme, like any other, is limited by state-of-the-art technology and the imagination of the experimentalists. I will present a brief introduction to the field of ion traps for Quantum Information Processing, with focus on Paul traps and Doppler cooling, and then talk about how we attack one of our biggest challenges: The scalability of the trapped-ion system, by using a programmable hologram.

For anyone that's interested in hearing about what opportunities a physics education can grant you beyond academia, and how you can best utilize your education, then this will be a great talk to attend.

This talk is geared toward an upper year audience; as always, everyone is welcome to attend.
