Building Practical Quantum Computers With Trapped Ions (JF2G.1)
Presenter: Winfried Hensinger, University of Sussex

I will discuss progress in building practical trapped ion quantum computers. The machines we develop are based on the use of global microwave fields where voltages are applied to a microchip to execute quantum gates.

Direct Observation of Trapped ion Micromotion and Multi-Qubits State With a TimePix3cam Single-Photon Sensitive Camera. (JF2G.2)
Presenter: LIUDMILA ZHUKAS, University of Washington

Here we demonstrate the use of Tpx3cam, a novel single-photon sensitive camera, in trapped ion experiments. We perform detection of multiple-qubit state as well as observation of micromotion in a linear ion chain.

Design and Fabrication of Silicon Gratings for the Optical Addressing of Trapped Ion Qubits (JF2G.3)
Presenter: Yu Dian Lim, Nanyang Technological University

Grating couplers are fabricated for the optical addressing of trapped ion qubits, where their respective feasibility is evaluated. From the obtained results, optical addressing of 1 to 2 ions is possible along various axes.

NISQ Ion-Trap Quantum Computers (JF2G.4)
Presenter: Kristin Beck, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Trapped atomic ions are a leading platform for quantum computing. In this talk, I will introduce the platform, present recent algorithm demonstrations, and describe new directions in device design.

A Venture Capital Perspective on Quantum Computing (JF2G.5)
Presenter: David Moehring, Cambium Capital

I will present our investment thesis on quantum computing from the perspective of venture capital, and how it differs from government funding.
