Quantum Interconnect Technologies Based On Epitaxial Rare-earth Doped Materials (QTh6B.1)
Presenter: Yizhong Huang, University of Chicago

We develop a nanophotonic platform for quantum interconnect technologies based on epitaxial Er3+:Y2O3 thin films on silicon. Long-lived rare-earth qubits in suspended membranes and heterostructure nanophotonic cavities enable telecom quantum nodes.

Toward hybrid quantum entanglement between trapped ions and neutral atoms (QTh6B.2)
Presenter: Qudsia Quraishi, US Army Research Laboratory

Trapped ions are excellent quantum networking nodes, yet limited by photon transmission range. We report integration of single-photon conversion with trapped ions, allowing for extended communication range and hybrid networking with neutral-atoms.

Towards Quantum Entanglement Between a Solid-State Spin and a Trapped Ion (QTh6B.3)
Presenter: Jennifer Lilieholm, University of Washington

We are constructing a system to remotely entangle a single trapped ytterbium ion with a donor qubit in zinc oxide through a photonic link as a step towards the construction of a hybrid quantum system.

Spontaneous emission rates and energy shifts of a Rydberg rubidium atom close to an optical nanofiber (QTh6B.4)
Presenter: Etienne Brion, CNRS

The influence of an optical nanofiber on the spontaneous emission rates and Lamb shifts of a Rydberg rubidium atom in its close vicinity is investigated, in view of the implementation of a Rydberg-blockade-based quantum network.
