School of Physics Colloquium Series: Presenting Jason Amini, GTRI

A quantum processor, using quantum states of light and matter, holds the promise of performing calculations and simulations that are not practical by a classical processor. Many of the key components for a quantum processor have been demonstrated by various research groups and we can expect these components to be integrated into basic quantum processors in the near future. However, there remain significant technical challenges in scaling the system size and making the system robust and flexible. In GTRI ‘s Quantum Information Systems (QIS)  Group, we use atomic ions as our quantum system and are developing scalable technologies for trapping ions and manipulating the quantum information the ions hold as well as tools to run an eventual processor. I will give an overview of the technologies being developed at GTRI and the efforts to make a quantum processor user friendly.
