CFN Colloquium

"Progress in Trapped Ion Quantum Computing"

Presented by Prof. Jungsang Kim, Duke University

Thursday, February 6, 2020, 4:00 pm — CFN, Bldg 735, Seminar Room, 2nd Floor

Trapped ions are one of the leading candidates for realizing practically useful quantum computers. Introduction of advanced integration technologies to this traditional atomic physics research has provided an opportunity to convert a complex atomic physics experiment into a stand-alone programmable quantum computer. In this presentation, I will discuss the new enabling technologies that changes the perception of a trapped ion system as a scalable quantum computer, and the concrete progress made to date in this endeavor. Short Biography: Prof. Jungsang Kim's current research focus is practical realization of quantum computers. He received his B.S. degree from Seoul National University (1992) and his Ph.D. from Stanford University (1999), both in Physics. He worked at Bell Laboratories for five years, working on developing cutting-edge optical and wireless communication systems. He joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Duke University in 2004, where he has worked on trapped ion quantum computing, high pixel-count imaging systems, and novel quantum device research. He has been serving as a principal investigator for many collaborative research projects on quantum computing and communications. In 2015, he co-founded IonQ, focusing on commercial development of ion trap based quantum computer.
