Ion Trap Quantum Computing

We put "ion" in "Quantum Computation..."

What We Do

The UW Ion Trap lab covers a range of work on experimental implementation of quantum computation, quantum communication, and quantum simulations using trapped ions. The tools used here range from radio-frequency ion traps of various shapes and sizes, lasers to cool the trapped ions, vacuum pumps, and various electronics. 

We currently have four ongoing projects:

This lab is hands on in many ways where students design and build their own components to test and validate. Graduates and undergraduates have great opportunities in this lab to support leading edge research in quantum computing, quantum simulation, and ion trapping. You will also be able to learn the components that make up an ion trapping system. Joining this lab could be your opportunity to join the age of quantum.
