Abstract

Entangled states are both a crucial component in quantum computers, and of great interest in their own right, highlighting the inherent nonlocality of quantum mechanics. As part of the drive toward larger entangled states for quantum computing, we have engineered the most complex entangled state so far in a collection of four trapped atomic ions. Notably, we employ a technique that is readily scalable to much larger numbers of atoms. Limits to the current experiment and plans to circumvent these limitations are presented.
