Progress on trapped ion quantum computing and networking

Lu-Ming Duan
Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

In this talk, I will review the recent progress on trapped ion quantum computing and networking, including the realization of large-scale quantum simulation of dynamics in Hubbard-type models beyond the classical simulation capability and the implementation of the dual-type qubits with crosstalk errors significantly below the error threshold, a key component for quantum error correction and fault-tolerant quantum computing.

Prof. Luming Duan received his bachelor (Ph. D) degree from USTC in1994 (1998). After appointments of assistant, associate, full professor and Fermi collegiate chair professor at the University of Michigan, he returned full time to China in 2018 and took the CC Yao Professor and the chair professorship in fundamental sciences at Tsinghua University. He received numerous awards, including Rao Ru-Tai fundamental optics prize, Huo Ying-Dong Prize, A. P. Sloan Fellowship, and was elected in 2009 to the APS fellowship.
Prof. Duan is a world expert on quantum computing and networking and has accomplished seminar works in the field of quantum information science. He proposed the well-known DLCZ scheme for quantum repeaters and modular network approach to quantum computing, laying an important foundation to scale up the sizes for quantum communication and computation. He published more than 200 paper in prestigious journals, including 2 in Rev. Mod. Phys., 8 in Nature, 3 in Science, and received more than 30,000 citations in Google scholar.
