Linear Paul trap design for high-fidelity, scalable quantum information processing

Abstract:

We have designed and built a new linear Paul trap to expand our capability for carrying out high-fidelity quantum logic. We have identified some key limitations of our existing trap: the presence of a magnetic field gradient of 0.6 milligauss per micrometre, which limits the fidelity of Bell state preparation; a high axial micromotion amplitude, which limits the fidelity of operations on linear ion crystals; and a small numerical aperture in the imaging system, which restricts the collecti...
