Welcome to the University of Washington trapped ion quantum computing group page! We work on experimental implementation of quantum computation and quantum communication using single trapped ions and single photons, and the hybrid atom-photon entangled state. Apart from the quantum information applications, we are also interested in testing the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics.

We are a part of the atomic physics group at the UW.
