Quantum Circuits Over the Cloud and the Future of Quantum Hardware (QM2A.1)
Presenter: Jerry Chow, IBM TJ Watson Research Center

Quantum computing is a new kind of computing that has accelerated through cloud access. It uses the same physical rules that atoms follow in order to manipulate information. At the very fundamental level, quantum computers execute quantum circuits much like a computer executes logic circuits, but by using the physical phenomena of superposition, entanglement, and interference, implement mathematical calculations that are out of the reach of even the most advanced supercomputers. In this talk I will give an overview of the IBM Quantum effort where we are working to increase the device performance of our core superconducting qubit systems to produce quantum circuits with higher fidelity and how we are linking the computational difficulty of these circuits towards quantum applications.

Atom Arrays of Ultracold Strontium: New Tools for Metrology and Many-body Physics (QM2A.2)
Presenter: Adam Kaufman, JILA

I will describe a new technique for trapping single strontium atoms and manipulating them coherently with a high degree of control. I will present how we can use this technique for precision optical frequency metrology.

Quantum Simulation and Sensing with Large Trapped-Ion Crystals (QM2A.3)
Presenter: John Bollinger, National Inst of Standards & Technology

I will discuss quantum sensing and simulation with planar crystals of hundreds of trapped ions. Quantum dynamics are benchmarked through out-of-time-order correlation (OTOC) measurements. Plans for single-qubit control will be discussed.
