Ion transport and reordering in a two-dimensional trap array

May 19, 2020
Yong Wan, Robert Jordens, Stephen Erickson, Jenny Wu, Ryan S. Bowler, Ting R. Tan, Panyu Hou, Andrew Wilson, Dietrich Leibfried
Scaling quantum information processors is a challenging task, requiring manipulation of a large number of qubits with high fidelity and a high degree of connectivity. For trapped ions, this could be realized in a two-dimensional array of interconnected

Quantum Logic Spectroscopy with Ions in Thermal Motion

April 16, 2020
Daniel Kienzler, Yong Wan, Stephen D. Erickson, Jenny J. Wu, Andrew C. Wilson, David J. Wineland, Dietrich G. Leibfried
A mixed-species geometric phase gate has been proposed for implementing quantum logic spectroscopy on trapped ions, which combines probe and information transfer from the spectroscopy to the logic ion in a single pulse. We experimentally realize this

Quantum gate teleportation between separated zones of a trapped-ion processor

May 31, 2019
Yong Wan, Daniel Kienzler, Stephen D. Erickson, Karl H. Mayer, Ting R. Tan, Jenny J. Wu, Hilma H. Macedo De Vasconcelos, Scott C. Glancy, Emanuel H. Knill, David J. Wineland, Andrew C. Wilson, Dietrich G. Leibfried
Large-scale quantum computers will inevitably require quantum gate operations between widely separated qubits, even within a single quantum information processing device. Nearly two decades ago, Gottesman and Chuang proposed a method for implementing such

Chained Bell inequality experiment with high-efficiency measurements

March 28, 2017
Ting Rei Tan, Stephen D. Erickson, Peter L. Bierhorst, Daniel Kienzler, Scott C. Glancy, Emanuel H. Knill, Dietrich G. Leibfried, David J. Wineland, Yong Wan
We report correlation measurements on two 9Be+ ions that violate a chained Bell inequality obeyed by any local-realistic theory. The correlations can be modeled as derived from a mixture of a local-realistic probabilistic distribution and a distribution
