Abstract: The quantum states of ions are perfectly controlled, and may be used for fundamental research in quantum physics, as highlighted by the Nobel Prize given to Dave Wineland in 2012. In this talk, I will highlight the advantages of trapped ions for quantum information processing, taking advantage of modern trap technologies to pave a way for scalability. The laser-ion interactions allow for high fidelity quantum gate operations, while the application of well-suited trap control voltages realizes ion shuttles and the reconfiguration of the ion quantum register. Alternatively, one may employ Rydberg excitation of trapped ions to allow for long-range interactions and quantum gate operation. Ferdinand Schmidt-Kaler http://www.quantenbit.de/publications/
