Developing techniques for the study of large-scale quantum simulators based on crystals of trapped atomic ions.
Our work aims to study the dynamics of large-scale entangled systems and to produce useful, controllable quantum simulators. This work involves detailed theoretical studies and experiments using trapped atomic ions.
Ion crystals in a Penning trap provide a two-dimensional qubit array with regular structure. This system is ideal for the realization of large-scale entanglement and useful quantum simulators via state-selective spin-motional interaction. Our work aims to engineer designer Hamiltonians for studies of quantum simulation and the dynamics of large entangled states. The particular states we are aiming to create may prove useful for studies of quantum magnetism and spin liquids.
