Ion transport within junction ion micro-chips for quantum algorithm implementation

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sussex
Department Name: Sch of Mathematical & Physical Sciences


Ion transport within ion trap arrays is a critical ingredient for an ion trap quantum computer. As
part of this project, the student will develop reliable shuttling protocols for ion transport within X-
junction ion trap arrays. The project includes both relevant theoretical simulations and
experimental implementation. Outcomes from the project will include diabatic and adiabatic
shuttling protocols and experimental demonstrations. We will focus on separation and
recombination of ion chains and transport through junctions. We will also develop shuttling
protocols for mixed species transport. Using these tools the student will perform quantum gates,
implement quantum algorithms and participate in the construction of a quantum computer
