Project Description

The project is a collaboration between the groups of Sae Woo Nam/Rich Mirin and the Ions group led by Dietrich Leibfried and Daniel Slichter to perform design, fabrication, and testing of superconducting nanowire detectors integrated with ion traps, working on improving yield and reducing motional heating of the ion near the detector. This experimental work supports NIST's mission to advance measurement science by improving the performance of quantum gates formed by trapped ions.
