Ancilla management for Steane code article posted on arXiv

As part of the ORAQL project in collaboration with the GTRI QIS group, we examined how the management of ancilla affects the time and fidelity of error correction. The results are now posted on the arXiv: Comparison of ancilla preparation and measurement procedures for the Steane [[7,1,3]] code on a model ion trap quantum computer, arXiv:1305.0349.

JP and Karl present at the Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium

JP Addison (diamond tie) and Karl Burkhardt (striped tie) gave presentations on their research at the Spring Undergraduate Research Symposium. Karl gave a talk on Quantum Sympathetic Heating Spectroscopy. JP presented a poster on Narrowband Composite Pulse Sequences for Addressing Errors that won 3rd place in the College of Sciences!

"Identifying Single Molecular Ions by Resolved Sideband Measurements" accepted by J. Phys. Chem. A

James (pictured above), Craig, Grahame, Ken W. and Ricardo worked together to assemble an experimental apparatus capable of measuring the mass of a sympathetically cooled molecular ion by resolved sideband spectroscopy of an atomic ion. The accepted, preformatted version is available here
