  Quantum information science is a growing field that promises to take computing into a new age of higher performance and larger scale computing as well as being capable of solving problems classical computers are incapable of solving. The outstanding issue in practical quantum computing today is scaling up the system while maintaining interconnectivity of the qubits and low error rates in qubit operations to be able to implement error correction and fault-tolerant operations. Trapped ion qubits offer long coherence times that allow error correction. However, error correction algorithms require large numbers of qubits to work properly. We can potentially create many thousands (or more) of qubits with long coherence states in a storage ring. For example, a circular radio-frequency quadrupole, which acts as a large circular ion trap and could enable larger scale quantum computing. Such a Storage Ring Quantum Computer (SRQC) would be a scalable and fault tolerant quantum information system, composed of qubits with very long coherence lifetimes.

  To configure a photoinjector to reproduce a given electron bunch with the desired characteristics, it is necessary to adjust the operating parameters with high precision. More or less, the fine tunability of the laser parameters are of extreme importance as we try to model further applications of the photoinjector. The laser pulse incident on the photocathode critically affects the electron bunch 3D phase space. Parameters such as the laser pulse transverse shape, total energy, and temporal profile must be controlled independently, any laser pulse variation over both short and long-time scales also requires correction. The ability to produce arbitrary laser intensity distributions enables better control of electron bunch transverse and longitudinal emittance by affecting the space-charge forces throughout the bunch. In an accelerator employing a photoinjector, electron optics in the beamline downstream are used to transport, manipulate, and characterize the electron bunch. The adjustment of the electron optics to achieve a desired electron bunch at the interaction point is a much better understood problem than laser adjustment, so this research emphasizes laser shaping.
