Compensating pulse sequence review published in Advances in Chemical Physics

The new volume of Advances in Chemical Physics is a special issue on Quantum Information and Computation for Chemistry edited by Sabre Kais.

Paper on Heating and Transport through a Y Junction Posted to the arXiv

Gang Shu et al. present their work on Heating and ion transport in a Y-junction surface-electrode trap arXiv:1403.4874. The trap and initial transport voltage waveforms were provided by Sandia. The waveforms used to achieve 74 quanta per roundtrip through the junction were designed by GTRI.

Study of composite pulses and time-dependent noise posted on arXiv

Chingiz Kabytayev et al. post their paper on Robustness of composite pulses to time-dependent control noise to the arXiv. The work was a collaboration between the Brown lab, Lorenza Viola's group at Dartmouth, and Michael Biercuk's group at the University of Sydney.
