Project Description

The project will develop techniques for quantum logic and spectroscopy that use trapped atomic ions within the Ion Storage Group of the Time and Frequency Division of NIST.  Initial focus will be on the use of an ancilla ion species to perform detection of ion qubits, without affecting the states of the qubit ions.  The work will include lasers and optics, high-vacuum systems, RF-electronics, and advanced computer-control technology and applying these techniques for the design and construction of equipment and software on various experiments to demonstrate quantum information protocols and methods to realize high resolution spectroscopy.
