Hi Fi Quantum Computing In quantum information processing, one goal is to control the entangled states of objects such that they can interact during logical operations but otherwise have minimal interactions with their environment. In one scheme for quantum computing, ions are trapped within and physically moved by electric fields. One drawback is that the entangled states can be sensitive to stray magnetic fields. Home et al. (p. 1227, published online 6 August 2009) show that coupling of the… 
Trapped-Ion Quantum Computer with Robust Entangling Gates and Quantum Coherent Feedback
Quantum computers are expected to achieve a significant speed-up over classical computers in solving a range of computational problems. Chains of ions held in a linear Paul trap are a promising
Quantum gates and memory using microwave-dressed states
This work shows how to overcome both problems by using stationary atomic quantum states as qubits that are induced by microwave fields (that is, by dressing magnetic-field-sensitive states with microwave fields), and offers a route to extending coherence times in all systems that suffer from magnetic noise.
Quantum Information Storage for over 180 s Using Donor Spins in a 28Si “Semiconductor Vacuum”
It is shown how the distinctive optical properties of enriched 28Si enable the use of hyperfine-resolved optical transitions, as previously applied to great effect for isolated atoms and ions in vacuum, to permit rapid nuclear hyperpolarization and electrical spin-readout.
Repeated multi-qubit readout and feedback with a mixed-species trapped-ion register
Up to 50 sequential measurements of correlations between two beryllium ion microwave qubits using an ancillary optical qubit in a calcium ion are demonstrated, and feedback is implemented that allows us to stabilize two-qubit subspaces as well as Bell states, a class of maximally entangled states.
Feedback-stabilised quantum states in a mixed-species ion system
Trapped ions are among the leading platforms for realising quantum information processing (QIP). One major challenge in constructing a large-scale QIP device will be to incorporate feedback
Hybrid quantum logic and a test of Bell’s inequality using two different atomic isotopes
A deterministic quantum logic gate is used to generate a ‘hybrid’ entangled state of two trapped-ion qubits held in different isotopes of calcium, perform full tomography of the state produced, and make a test of Bell’s inequality with non-identical atoms.
Entangling two transportable neutral atoms via local spin exchange
This work shows how, using a mobile optical tweezer, it is possible to prepare and locally entangle two ultracold neutral atoms, and then separate them while preserving their entanglement, and could be applied to arbitrary spin-entangled states of spatially separated atoms.
An open-system quantum simulator with trapped ions
This work combines multi-qubit gates with optical pumping to implement coherent operations and dissipative processes and illustrates the ability to engineer the open-system dynamics through the dissipative preparation of entangled states, the simulation of coherent many-body spin interactions, and the quantum non-demolition measurement of multi- qubit observables.
Demonstration of the trapped-ion quantum CCD computer architecture.
A cryogenic surface trap is used to integrate all necessary elements of the QCCD architecture-a scalable trap design, parallel interaction zones and fast ion transport-into a programmable trapped-ion quantum computer that has a system performance consistent with the low error rates achieved in the individual ion crystals.
Novel systems and methods for quantum communication, quantum computation, and quantum simulation

Entanglement of single-atom quantum bits at a distance
The entanglement of two fixed single-atom quantum memories separated by one metre is demonstrated by directly measuring qubit correlations with near-perfect detection efficiency, and is still in principle useful for subsequent quantum operations and scalable quantum information applications.
Deterministic quantum teleportation of atomic qubits
Un unconditional teleportation of massive particle qubits using atomic (9Be+) ions confined in a segmented ion trap is reported, which achieves an average fidelity of 78 per cent, which exceeds the fidelity of any protocol that does not use entanglement.
Towards fault-tolerant quantum computing with trapped ions
Like their classical counterparts, quantum computers can, in theory, cope with imperfections—provided that these are small enough. The regime of fault-tolerant quantum computing has now been reached
Experimental Issues in Coherent Quantum-State Manipulation of Trapped Atomic Ions
Some experimental issues in the proposal for trappedion quantum computation by J. I. Cirac and P. Zoller (University of Innsbruck) are discussed and several possible decoherence mechanisms are examined.
Architecture for a large-scale ion-trap quantum computer
This work shows how to achieve massively parallel gate operation in a large-scale quantum computer, based on techniques already demonstrated for manipulating small quantum registers, and uses the use of decoherence-free subspaces to do so.

Entangled states of trapped atomic ions
Experiments show that just a few entangled trapped ions can be used to improve the precision of measurements, and if the entanglement in such systems can be scaled up to larger numbers of ions, simulations that are intractable on a classical computer might become possible.
