Abstract : This program was a theory/experiment collaboration focusing on the fundamental need for scalability in the development of quantum information processing. Theory and experiment were connected and interleaved at several levels. The theory objectives were 1) to develop new theoretical tools to enable the implementation of reliable quantum information processing in scalable systems and 2) to characterize the relations between quantum algorithms and architectures, between fault tolerance and architectures, between quantum and classical complexity classes, and to develop secure primitives for quantum cryptography. The experimental objectives were to develop scalable quantum component technology based on gas phase systems using atoms and light fields. Specific experimental goals were scalable implementation of universal quantum logic in optical lattices and achievement of deterministic control in atom/cavity systems.
