Characterizing ion-trap quantum computers

A major challenge towards practically useful quantum computing is
characterizing and reducing the various errors that accumulate during
an algorithm running on large-scale processors. Most characterization
techniques are unable to adequately account for the exponentially
large set of potential errors, including cross-talk and other
correlated noise sources.  We experimentally demonstrate cycle
benchmarking to quantify such errors in non-entangling and entangling
operations on an ion-trap quantum computer with up to 10 qubits [1,2].
