INTERCOM: A high-performance ion-photon interface to enable multi-core trapped ion quantum computing

Lead organisation: Nu Quantum Ltd.

Partners: University of Oxford, NQCC

Project summary: The project aims to create a device that enables quantum information to be transferred through photonic links between remote ion traps to provide a scalable and modular architecture. The solution exploits the confinement of light between two micro-mirrors in a resonant optical cavity, ensuring a strong interaction between the ion (or atom) and the optical field. The project will deliver a robust, turn-key cavity interface that allows scalable integration in ion and atom-based quantum
