The following report outlines the progress that has been made within the Scalable Quantum Information Processing SQIP with Trapped Ions program. In particular it will emphasis on the two setups maintained and installed at the University of Innsbruck UIBK in Austria, lead by Rainer Blatt, focusing on quantum information processing - in particular the realization of quantum algorithms, the team around Ferdinand Schmidt-Kaler at the University of Mainz UMZ working on distributed entanglement within an ion-trap via splitting and shuttling of ions without excess heating of the motional state, the group of Issac Chuang at the MIT in Boston working both on quantum algorithms as well as an ion-photon interface to connect distant ion-traps, supplemented by the team at the University of BerkeleyCaliforniaUCB, supervised by Hartmut Haffner, aiming at understanding and overcoming detrimental effects in surface trap based quantum computation.
