NIST Success Story

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST created the Advanced Real-Time Infrastructure for Quantum Physics (ARTIQ) which is a next-generation control system for quantum information experiments.

ARTIQ uses InfluxData’s InfluxDB as their time series database to log and analyze everything about their quantum physics experiments: from vacuum pressures, environmental parameters, and laser powers, to qubit transition frequencies, single ion fluorescence, and quantum gate fidelities. ARTIQ was developed in partnership with the Ion Storage Group at NIST, and its applicability reaches beyond ion trapping. The system features a high-level programming language that helps to describe complex experiments, which is compiled and executed on dedicated hardware with nanosecond timing resolution and sub-microsecond latency.

Having this information will make it easier for scientists to share information and gain deeper insights into their experiments.
