On the Road Again

Last week I was in Boulder for a workshop on ion trap quantum computing. Basically nearly everyone who is working on ion trap architectures for quantum computing was there, which was pretty incredible. A highlight of the workshop, besides the excellent experimental results, was that I got to see one of the participants describe how the ions will be shuttled around using his feet and then turning this description into a dance step. The ion trap boogie, or something like that. Won’t it be great to see the actual boogie in the ion traps?

    so as a Cavity QED type guy, I’ll need to bounce between the walls to simulate photons in a cavity??? I’ll let my students give that talk 🙂

    Dude, I will be happy to see the ion trap boogie on more feet. That sounds like fun!

    It reminds me of the E&M Wave, delightfully dorkiest dance ever.

  3. The standard method for annotating a dance step is Labanotation (http://user.uni-frankfurt.de/~griesbec/LABANE.HTML) — could you tell us precisely of what the shuffle consists?
