Enhanced trapped-ion laser cooling and quantum gate operations in structured light fields

Practical quantum information processing requires significant advances over current systems in error and robustness of basic operations, and in scale.

Karan Mehta received BS. Degrees from UCLA in Physics and Electrical Engineering in 2010, and completed his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT in 2017, with the support of a DOE Science Graduate Fellowship. From 2017 to 2021 he was an ETH Postdoctoral Fellow, and subsequently senior scientist, in the Physics department at ETH Zurich. He joined Cornell ECE in January of 2022 where he leads the Photonics and Quantum Electronics group. He is recipient of an NSF CAREER award and a Sloan Research Fellowship in Physics.
