With exceptional coherence and gate fidelities, trapped ions offer unique opportunities to process quantum information. As a consequence quantum algorithms with up to 20 ions have been implemented on trapped-ion quantum computers. To take the next steps will require the research community to take on the engineering challenges as well as exploring improving fundamental aspects. I will...

Electrically neutral dipolar molecules prepared in the absolute ground state represent one of the newest additions to the quantum-information and simulation family tree. Prepared in the lowest rotational state ($N=0$), and in the absence of a polarizing electric field, neutral dipolar molecules lack a lab-frame electric dipole moment (EDM). However, admixing components of higher rotational...

Encoding quantum information in the higher energy levels of the transmon circuit provides a hardware efficient way to harness a larger Hilbert space in existing quantum processors while also increasing their connectivity. Furthermore, a network of qutrits (three-level systems) is naturally suited to experimentally demonstrate recently identified connections between high energy physics and...
