Dr. Clark Highstrete (Sandia National Laboratories)
Quantum information science is an exciting field of research with potential technological benefits to progress and security at a national level. The Sandia National Laboratories have a robust portfolio of quantum information science and technology research and development (QIS&T R&D) efforts spanning diverse physical systems, including Rydberg states of trapped atoms, microfabricated atomic ion trap devices, and silicon solid-state devices combining metal-oxide-semiconductor quantum dots with assembled donor atoms. This talk will provide a survey of Sandia’s QIS&T work, focusing on the experimental research and technology development. Fundamental elements of experimental approaches will also be discussed in this context. Related development efforts at Sandia toward beyond-Moore computing and advanced manufacturing at the atomic scale will also be introduced.
