Milestones

Adress­ing
Con­trol­ling indi­vid­ual qubits with­out inter­fer­ing with oth­ers is a cru­cial demand on every quan­tum com­put­er. With MAGIC, it works bet­ter than on any oth­er architecture.
CNOT
We used MAGIC cou­pling to imple­ment a 2‑Qubit gate between any two ions in a reg­is­ter. The fideli­ty is at 98% now, and rel­a­tive­ly insen­si­tive against ther­mal exci­ta­tion of the ions.
Qubit-Recast
Our qubits can be turned from pro­cess­ing qubits into stor­age qubits — and back — by high-fre­quen­cy puls­es, with­in the blink of an eye.
Trans­port
We demon­strat­ed the near-per­fect preser­va­tion of quan­tum infor­ma­tion dur­ing ion trans­port — mov­ing an ion over 20 mil­lion times over a total length of 5 kilometers.
Com­pact­i­fi­ca­tion
We have devel­oped a chip car­ri­er for a com­pact vac­u­um set­up — which is already in use for both basic research and quan­tum infor­ma­tion, as well as trans­portable ion clocks.
Chip Inte­gra­tion
We devel­oped ion trap chips with inte­grat­ed mag­net­ic field coils, and anten­nas for HF fields — for tun­able MAGIC interactions.
Con­nec­tiv­i­ty
We have used the high con­nec­tiv­i­ty ion trap quan­tum reg­is­ters to imple­ment a super-effi­cient form of the Quan­tum Fouri­er Transform.
Flex­i­bil­i­ty
We showed that the inter­ac­tions between qubits can be scaled and tuned to cre­ate clus­ter states, or effec­tie long-range interactions.
MAGIC Learn­ing
We imple­ment­ed quan­tum rein­force­ment learn­ing — and demon­strat­ed an enhanced effi­cien­cy over clas­si­cal algorithms.
