Abstract:

In ion trap quantum information processing, efficient fluorescence collection is critical for fast, high-fidelity qubit detection and ion photon entanglement. The expected size of future many-ion processors requires scalable light collection systems. We report on the development and testing of a microfabricated surface-electrode ion trap with an integrated high-numerical aperture NA micromirror for fluorescence collection. When coupled to a low-NA lens, the optical system is inherently scalable to large arrays of mirrors in a single device.
