Physics Colloquium: From quantum computers to new physics searches with trapped atomic ions
Roee Ozeri, Weizmann Institute
Trapped-ions are highly controlled quantum systems. Trapped-ion systems are one of the leading platforms for the realization of a quantum computer and also provide extreme spectroscopic precision and optical clock-work. In this colloquium I will describe how mthods which are borrowed from the world of quantum computing can be used to increase the coherence time of an atomic superposition which in turn leads to greater measurement precision. I will further show how this great spectroscopic precision can be used to search for new forces and beyond-standard model physics searches.
