This new research effort will investigate the fundamental limitations of the necessary components of a quantum network. Specifically, wewill design and construct a set of compact single atom traps with integrated optics, suitable for heralded entanglement and loophole freeBells inequality measurements. The goal of this effort is two-fold technical development and scientific investigation. The objective of thetechnical development is to achieve fast loading and qubit manipulation in the single-atom traps, which will enable our scientificinvestigation. The goal of our scientific investigation is to demonstrate high fidelity and fast atom-atom entanglement between physicallyseparated and optically addressed qubits. We will also demonstrate device-independent randomness expansion, once the entanglement isexperimentally demonstrated and verified. Our further scientific efforts will focus on the fundamental limitations and efficiency ofentanglement distribution between unlike quantum systems, e.g. ions to single atoms.
