Ion Quantum Technology at Sussex...
Welcome to the web page of the Ion Quantum Technology group at the University of Sussex, Brighton, UK. The group is headed by Prof. Winfried Hensinger. Our aim is to develop new quantum technologies, in particular, the ion trap quantum computer. For this purpose our research focuses on applied experimental quantum information science, development of new scalable methods to build ion trap arrays and the generation of large scale entanglement. In the short term, we aim to build quantum simulators and in the long term large scale quantum computers. Another research area is the development of quantum sensors. The group is part of the UK Quantum Technology Hub on Networked Quantum Technologies and the UK Quantum Technology Hub for Sensors and Metrology. The group is part of the Sussex Centre for Quantum Technologies.
More information about our research, grouped by different target groups, can be found in the Research Section. Here you can find videos, explanations, interviews with current students and other useful information.
