Welcome to the Trapped Ion Quantum Technologies group led by Markus Hennrich. Our group is located at the Department of Physics at Stockholm University and is working on using trapped ions for quantum computation, quantum simulation and quantum sensing applications. In particular, we are one of only two groups worldwide that have realised trapped Rydberg ions - a promising technology for speeding up trapped ion quantum computers.
Our pre-print on Single-shot measurements of phonon number states using the Autler-Townes effect has been uploaded on Arxivs: Marion Mallweger, et al., Single-shot measurements of phonon number states using the Autler-Townes effect, New J. Phys. 23, 123028 (2021), arXiv:2107.01902. In this work we introduce and demonstrate new techniques which allow us to minimize unwanted electric fields at the ions’ position fast and precisely via interferometric pulse sequences.
We welcome Ivo Straka to our Group!
He will be joining us as a Postdoc.
