Imaging of trapped ions with wavelength-scale resolution using a microfabricated optic

Trapped ions are a leading system for implementing quantum information processing (QIP) on a small scale. A clear roadmap exists for achieving large scale QIP [1, 2] including the use of phase Fresnel lens (PFL) arrays as scalable optical interconnect [3]. Recently, we have demonstrated the successful integration of a single microfabricated PFL with an RF… CONTINUE READING
