Spatial correlation patterns in quasi-adiabatically prepared ground states for N = 300 qubits

A team of Chinese Scientists from Tsinghua University has demonstrated success in achieving stable trapping of 512 ions in a two dimensional Wigner crystal. In addition, they have achieved quantum state measurements with single-qubit resolution across an unprecedented 300 ions, the largest number achieved to date. For more information, you can read an article published by the Xinhua news service here or read the full technical paper published by Nature titled “A site-resolved two-dimensional quantum simulator with hundreds of trapped ions” that can be accessed here.
