Project Description

The NIST Ion Storage group (ISG) conducts experiments with trapped ions for applications in quantum information, computing, networking, and simulation. These experiments range from fundamental quantum physics to practical development of quantum-enhanced measurement technologies. Researcher works on an interface between ion and photon-based quantum bits for networking. The work involves laserand microwave-based quantum gates and fiber-based miniature cavities, integrated with a scalable architecture for trapped-ion-based quantum information processors.

Research Interests

I currently work on a project in the NIST Ion Storage Group to develop a quantum network with trapped ions. More generally, my research interests include AMO implementations of quantum information and its applications in computing, precision measurement, and fundamental physics.
