Trapped ion systems are currently one of the most promising technologies for observing and utilising quantum mechanical behaviour. Such systems, by making use of superpositions and entangled states are suitable for a range of applications that are beyond the reach of any classical counterpart. These include enhanced metrology, secure communication, simulation of other quantum systems or phenomena and quantum computation. In our group we aim to make use of an ion trapping platform, as well as strong interactions between highly-excited Rydberg ions, in order to develop new and exciting schemes for quantum information processing and quantum sensing; as well as various other research projects involving the study of fundamental physics, such as the way light interacts with a single atom.
