Getting cross-Kerr with trapped ions

CQT researchers have exploited the vibrations of trapped ions to explore a phenomenon known from optics. The technique offers new tools for experiments in quantum thermodynamics and quantum computing. CQT's Shiqian Ding, Gleb Maslennikov, Roland Hablutzel, Huanqian Loh and Dzmitry Matsukevich describe their work in a pair of papers published in Physical Review Letters
