STAQ presented one invited talk and three contributed talks.
Maya Berlin-Udi from the Haeffner group describes hardware efforts Exploring electric-field noise mechanisms through treatments of an ion trap surface
Prof. Peter Love discussed applications for high-energy physics in Simulating quantum field theory in the light-front formulation
Crystal Noel from the Monroe group explains the STAQ hardware vision A universal quantum computer based on long chains of ions
The workshop ended with Prof. Jungsang Kim laying out the engineering challenge of Engineering a practical quantum computer.
Posters were presented from the groups of Miyake, Haeffner, Brown, and Gorshkov.
