Shuttling-based Ion Quantum Processors

There are numerous ways to build a quantum computer, and trapped ion processors are a promising option. There are also many ways to implement a quantum processor with trapped ions. I will describe an architecture based on physically transporting ions - 'shuttling' the qubits from place to place, and which minimises laser complexity in favor of microwave based qubit control. Both the verification of shuttling trajectories, and the qubit readout process depend upon weak fluorescence signals emitted by single particles, and I will discuss these issues and show some recent highlights of our work.
