TOPIC: Engineering a Quantum Information Processor
Fundamental advantage of utilizing quantum resources for computation
and communication has been discovered in the last two decades.
Experimental demonstration of representing and manipulating quantum
bits in physical systems and simple quantum algorithms followed.
While the experimental research in this field has progressed at a
rapid pace, the notion of a practical information processor based on
quantum physics still faces tremendous amount of challenges.
Construction of a scalable quantum information processor is a system
design challenge that requires cutting-edge technology guided by
engineering principles. The task requires expertise in quantum
physics, computer architectures and integrated microsystems
technology, and lots of exciting research is still to be done. In
this talk, I will discuss the multidisciplinary challenge of
designing a quantum information processor, and some of the technology
progress made to date. I will present micro-electromechanical systems
(MEMS) and micro-optics technology applied to integration of qubits
represented by atomic ions trapped in a ultra-high vacuum chamber.
