Proposal for a scalable universal bosonic simulator using individually trapped ions

  title={Proposal for a scalable universal bosonic simulator using individually trapped ions},

We describe a possible architecture to implement a universal bosonic simulator (UBS) using trapped ions. Single ions are confined in individual traps, and their motional states represent the bosonic modes. Single-mode linear operators, nonlinear phase-shifts, and linear beam splitters can be realized by precisely controlling the trapping potentials. All the processes in a bosonic simulation, except the initialization and the readout, can be conducted beyond the Lamb-Dicke regime. Aspects of our…

Linear mode-mixing of phonons with trapped ions
Abstract We propose a method to manipulate the normal modes in a chain of trapped ions using only two lasers. Linear chains of trapped ions have proven experimentally to be highly controllable

Creation of Squeezed Schrödinger's Cat States in a Mixed-Species Ion Trap
This thesis reports on novel experiments in the field of quantum state engineering and preparation using a single trapped Ca ion. It also covers the laser system, optical setups, experimental
Experimental scattershot boson sampling
The first scattershot boson sampling experiments are reported, where six different photon-pair sources are coupled to integrated photonic circuits, providing strong evidence that the photonic quantum simulator works as expected.
Shortcuts to adiabaticity for an ion in a rotating radially-tight trap
We engineer the fast rotation of a quantum particle confined in an effectively one-dimensional, harmonic trap, for a predetermined rotation angle and time, avoiding final excitation. Different
Materials challenges for trapped-ion quantum computers
This Review surveys materials opportunities to improve the performance of trapped-ion qubits, from understanding the surface science that leads to electric-field noise to developing methods for building ion traps with integrated optics and electronics.
Routes Towards Optical Quantum Technology --- New Architectures and Applications
This thesis explores quantum random walks, which are the basis of how the bosons in BosonSampling interfere with each other, and invented a completely new architecture which can implement Boson sampling in time rather than space and has since been used to make the worlds largest Boson Sampling experiment ever performed.
Shortcuts to Adiabaticity
Quantum adiabatic processes--that keep constant the populations in the instantaneous eigenbasis of a time-dependent Hamiltonian--are very useful to prepare and manipulate states, but take typically a
NOON States of Nine Quantized Vibrations in Two Radial Modes of a Trapped Ion.
A deterministic method to generate and verify arbitrarily high NOON states of quantized vibrations (phonons) through the coupling to the internal state, which is generic and applicable to other photonic or phononic systems such as circuit QED systems or nanomechanical oscillators, which have Jaynes-Cummings-type of interactions.
