About Experimental Quantum Information Physics Unit, OIST
The Experimental Quantum Information Physics Unit carries out experimental studies on highly controllable quantum systems.
A particular research emphasis is put on the development of ion traps with optical interfaces mediated by single photons.
A single atomic ion is trapped inside a high-Q optical micro-resonator such that it strongly interacts with photons.
The unit investigates the novel physics of such strongly coupled quantum systems and harnesses the ion-photon interaction to create a functional quantum device for networked quantum information processing.
To provide an ideal research environment and to support Moonshot project, OIST has formed a project team to fully back up the project manager. The team helps to collaborate/communicate with JST and other project memebrs, and the PR of this project.
