Research and development on characterization of planar ion traps with Ba ions
業務内容/Work contents
The following work related to the R&D theme "characterization of planar ion traps with Ba ions" of the Moonshot Research and Development Project "Fault-tolerant Quantum Computer with Photonically Interconnected Ion Traps": To research and develop fundamental technology for applying 133Ba+ as a qubit for error-tolerant quantum computers with photonically interconnected ion traps. Specifically, 1. To construct a Ba+ trap system using a linear Paul trap or a planar ion trap.
2. To establish a technology to trap ions isotope-selectively for barium, which has a variety of isotopes.
3. To establish laser cooling and Coulomb crystallization technology.
4. To conduct research on quantum information processing based on these technologies.
