|Title:||Toward Spin Squeezing with Trapped Ions|
|Published:||September 23, 2010|
|Abstract:||Building robust instruments capable of making interferometric measurements with precision beyond the standard quantum limit remains an important goal in many metrology laboratories. We describe here the basic concepts underlying spin squeezing experiments which allow one to surpass this limit. In principle it is possible to reach the so-called Heisenberg limit which constitutes an improvement in precision by a factor \sqrtN, where N is the number of particles on which the measurement is carried out. In particular, we focus on recent progress toward implementing spin squeezing with a cloud of beryllium ions in a Penning ion trap, via the geometric phase gate used more commonly for performing two-qubit entangling operations in quantum computing experiments.|
