We have developed a new method to efficiently prepare dressed state qubits and qutrits, thereby significantly reducing the experimental complexity of gate operations with dressed-state qubits. Dressed states are well protected from noise making them ideal for use in many quantum technology applications. Published in Physical Review A and selected as ‘Editor’s Suggestion’.
We demonstrate spin-motion entanglement using longwave radiation. This is a critical step towards the experimental realisation of high-fidelity two-qubit gates using microwaves rather than laser radiation. Published in Physical Review A.
