The U. S. Army Research Office (ARO) in partnership with the National Security Agency (NSA) is soliciting proposals for research in Trapped Ion Qubits.
This BAA has three research goals; (a) substantially reduce noise levels detrimental to high fidelity gates in trapped ion systems and to improve
the stability of these gates once achieved; (b) explore novel quantum information encoding schemes and/or entanglement generation schemes with trapped ion systems; (c) development of critical supporting technology required for successful highly stable high fidelity trapped ion systems.
Proposals are sought that address one of the three BAA goals:
1. Highly stable high fidelity trapped ion systems 2. Novel encoding and entanglement generation schemes 3. Key supporting technology to enable highly stable high fidelity trapped ion systems
