Video Library

Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, public outreach events such as talks from top scientists using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres.  Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities. 

Recordings of events in these areas are all available and On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA)PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's 

Accessibly by anyone with internet, Perimeter aims to share the power and wonder of science with this free library.

In this talk, I will briefly review the recent progress on quantum computation and simulation in the trapped ion system, with particular emphasis on the idea of scaling (how to scale up the number of qubits). I will discuss ideas towards large-scale quantum computation/simulation based on the network approach or the use of transverse phonon modes in anharmonic traps and then review the recent experimental progress along this direction.  At the end of the talk, I will also briefly mention recent activities in Tsinghua-Michigan Joint Institute for quantum information.
