Research Interests  

My group performs quantum information experiments with trapped atomic ions.  High-fidelity coherent control of atoms is used to explore applications of quantum entanglement ranging from quantum logic and computing to quantum-enhanced precision measurement. A major focus of my research is the development of techniques and tools that will be needed in large-scale, fault-tolerant, quantum-information processors. My labs are part of the NIST Ion Storage Group and located on the NIST campus in Boulder.
