ARTIQ: the Advanced Real-Time Infrastructure for Quantum physics

June 3, 2016 - 9:30am
Sébastien Bourdeauducq

ARTIQ (Advanced Real-Time Infrastructure for Quantum physics) is a
next-generation control system for quantum information experiments. It
is developed by M-Labs in partnership with the Ion Storage Group at NIST
as free software. The system features a high-level programming language
that helps describing complex experiments, which is compiled and
executed on dedicated FPGA hardware with nanosecond timing resolution
and sub-microsecond latency. This language can easily interact with
conventional Python code that performs tasks such as data analysis,
plotting, or controlling "slow" USB devices. ARTIQ includes graphical
user interfaces to parametrize and schedule experiments and to visualize
and explore the results.
