Quantum Inf Process (2011) 10:1061–1063 DOI 10.1007/s11128-011-0306-2 EPILOGUE Prospects of quantum information processing with atoms Peter Zoller Received: 26 August 2011 / Published online: 20 September 2011 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011 Quantum information, and particular questions of implementing quantum information processing, is now almost two decades old, and has developed into a mature ﬁeld of physics. In the ﬁrst decade many of the conceptual foundations of the ﬁeld of quantum information were laid down, many of the basic theoretical proposals for implement- ing quantum computing and quantum communications with various physical systems were formulated, and a ﬁrst generation of experimental demonstrations of some of the basic building blocks and protocols of QIPC were shown in the lab. Today we are in a phase where the experimental challenge is not only to achieve high ﬁdelity in operations, but to scale up systems both in the number of qubits and in the complexity of the quantum operations towards fault tolerant quantum computing. Progress during the last few years has been remarkable, and exceeded our early dreams, although on the scale of futuristic goals and hopes of QIPC this remains a ﬁrst step. The requirements of implementing QIPC include the
