Ion trap mounted in a vacuum canThis work package is designing and constructing a new ion trap with high optical access which will be used for initial experiments in interfacing trapped-ion ‘memory’ qubits using photonic ‘communication’ qubits. This is the basic element of the Q20:20 network architecture.

Key tasks of work package 1 include: Development of Ion-traps for Q20:20 goals, including single-ion traps, multi-ion traps and compact ion-trap suitable for Q20:20 demonstrator.
