We Doppler cool barium ions in mixed barium-ytterbium chains confined in a linear RF trap and measure the motional average occupation quantum numbers of all radial normal modes. The full set of orderings in a chain of two barium and two ytterbium ions have been probed, and we show that the average thermal occupation number for all chain configurations strongly depends on the trap aspect ratio. We demonstrate efficient sympathetic cooling of all radial normal modes for the trap aspect ratio of 2…

Sympathetic ground-state cooling and coherent manipulation with two-ion crystals
We have cooled a two-ion crystal to the ground-state of its collective modes of motion. Laser cooling, more specifically resolved sideband cooling, is performed sympathetically by illuminating only
Trapped Ion Chain Thermometry and Mass Spectrometry through Imaging
We demonstrate a spatial-imaging thermometry technique for ions in a one-dimensional Coulomb crystal by relating their imaged spatial extent along the linear radiofrequency ion trap axis to normal
Toward a scalable quantum computing architecture with mixed species ion chains
Generation of ion–photon entanglement with barium ions with a fidelity of 0.84 is discussed, which is an initial step towards remote ion–ion coupling in a more scalable quantum information architecture.
Large-Scale Quantum Computation in an Anharmonic Linear Ion Trap
We propose a large-scale quantum computer architecture by more easily stabilizing a single large linear ion chain in a very simple trap geometry. By confining ions in an anharmonic linear trap with
Trapped ion scaling with pulsed fast gates
Fast entangling gates for trapped ions offer vastly improved gate operation times relative to implemented gates, as well as approaches to trap scaling. Gates on neighbouring ions only involve local
Single-qubit quantum memory exceeding ten-minute coherence time
A long-time quantum memory capable of storing and measuring quantum information at the single-qubit level is an essential ingredient for practical quantum computation and communication1,2. Currently,
Quantum computing with trapped ions
Modular entanglement of atomic qubits using photons and phonons
Many quantum protocols require fast, remote entanglement generation to outperform their classical counterparts. A modular solution is now reported, using trapped ions that are remotely entangled
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.
