Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network: Building "Triplets" to Bridge Academia and Industry

  • By Leena Aggarwal
  • 13 December 2017

Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-NET) is housed at the Chicago Quantum Exchange, an intellectual hub and partnership for advancing academic and industrial efforts in the science and engineering of quantum information. QISE-NET is built "Triplets" to Bridge Academia and Industry which is sponsored by the National Science Foundation within the “Quantum Leap” and “Growing Convergent Research” Big Ideas. TRIPLETS program offers excellent opportunities for graduate students in all areas of quantum information science and engineering.

Trapped atomic ions are an ideal system for quantum computation, with optically-accessible qubit states with long coherence times and fidelities exceeding 99% [1]. This combination allows us to take advantage of coherence and entanglement--two distinctly quantum phenomena--to realize one- and two- qubit gates and to explore quantum algorithms that promise to scale better than their classical counterparts on particular problems like factoring large numbers [2]. In this talk, I will describe the trapped ion quantum computing architecture [3,4], share first signals from a...

There is considerable excitement about in realizing non-Abelian Anyons, particles whose phase upon exchange depends on the path taken. Their observation signals the emergence of new topological phases and offers a route to quantum computation. I will outline the reasons to expect such particles in a particular quantum spin-liquid, where there is long-range entanglement but no magnetic order. I will then describe a particularly promising van-der-Walls material for realizing such particles, RuCl3. Via Raman spectroscopy, we have uncovered the Fermi statistics emerging from the Majorana...
