The Quantum Information Systems Group is part of the Georgia Tech Research Institute's Advanced Concepts Laboratory. We are composed of a large team of scientists and engineers from a broad array of disciplines; including physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, optical engineering, mechanical engineering, and chemical engineering.
Our goal is to develop systems that can be used to advance fundamental research in quantum information science and to develop novel devices based on quantum technologies.
We have three main research thrusts: investigating the physics of trapped ions; developing microfabricated ion traps; and modeling quantum architectures.
- We are maintaining an interactive plot of accumulated heating rates for ion traps.
- May 2: Comparison of ancilla preparation and measurement procedures for the Steane [[7,1,3]] code on a model ion trap quantum computer posted on the arXiv.
- April 30: Modular cryostat for ion trapping with surface-electrode ion traps published in the Review of Scientific Instruments.
- April 25: Spatially uniform single-qubit gate operations with near-field microwaves and composite pulse compensation posted on the arXiv.
- March 4: Reliable transport through a microfabricated X-junction surface-electrode ion trap published in the New Journal of Physics.
- The QIS group has several position openings.
- Several of our ion trap designs are freely available to research groups.
