Klemens Schüppert: Ion Trap Technology

Klemens Schüppert: Ion Trap Technology

Trapped ions have established themselves over the past decades as one of the most promising platforms for quantum information processing. The most signi cant remaining challenge is the scalability of these quantum systems beyond the size of one linear trap. Our vision to overcome this limitation is to combine the well-proven one-dimensional linear ion traps with the advantage of two-dimensional structures by switching between two directions of linear ion traps. In this project, we will investigate the exchange of RF- and DCelectrodes within the coherence times of the ions.

My ESQ Discovery Grant allows me to follow an idea about a new ion trap technology that came up during my PhD work. Thanks to the ESQ, the realization of this idea is now supported and hosted by excellent quantum research groups.
