Trapped ions are one of the most promising platforms for quantum computing due to their long coherence times and demonstrated precise control. Recently, significant progress has been made towards developing useful trapped ion quantum computing platforms. However, the challenge remains for creating a platform with sufficient numbers of qubits and fast high-fidelity gate operations. Fast entangling gates utilising ultrafast pulses are a promising development offering arbitrarily fast gate times and high fidelities for sufficient laser powers. In this presentation, I discuss the optimisation of pulsed schemes to produce high fidelity gates and I show how these gates can be used in scalable architectures.
