Trapped-ion quantum information in 2-dimensional Penning trap arrays

Project description

Developing a new quantum platform based on 2D Penning trap arrays

Rapid advances have been achieved in quantum computing, demonstrating high-precision quantum control in microfabricated radio frequency ion traps while eliminating the problematic radio frequency potential using a uniform magnetic field. Building on these advances, the EU-funded IONPEN project aims to develop a new quantum computation and simulation platform based on scalable 2D arrays of ions in microfabricated Penning traps. It will demonstrate many-body interacting spin Hamiltonians at ion numbers unattainable by conventional computers. In this way, it will create a scalable quantum simulator that can provide new insights into the links between microscopic physics and emergent behaviour. The project will have an impact on fields such as fundamental physics, chemistry, materials science and cryptography.
