Abstract

We summarize experiments at NIST that (1) use guantum gates to entabgle ions and thereby improve the measurement signal-to-noise ratio in spectroscopy and (2) implement sympathetic cooling and quantum state transfer techniques, which might be used to increase the number of chices of ions used for clocks.
