Trapped atomic ions are standards for quantum information processing, as all of the fundamental quantum operations have been demonstrated in small collections of atoms. Current work is concentrated on scaling ion traps to larger numbers of interacting qubits and the generation of massive entangled states. We discuss progress in the quantum networking of trapped atomic ions, using the Coulomb interaction for demonstrations of simple quantum simulations of magnetism, ultrafast laser pulses for entanglement, and finally probabilistic photonic interactions to bridge entanglement over long distances.
