Abstract
A MEMS based multicolor beam steering system for generating 2D spot arrays has been demonstrated. For effective quantum computation applications, the optical system requires further optimization and refinement. In phase II, parameters such as beam scanning frame rates, insertion loss, system scalability and methods to improve the stability and ruggedness of the optical system will be enhanced towards a production ready process. Collaboration with experimental research groups working on trapped ion or neutral atom arrays will allow system refinements and provide added insight into the integration process. At the same time, commercial applications of this technology will be pursued.
