Trapped ions provide a promising platform for large scale quantum computing. A crucial element of this scalability will be the integration of laser light into the trapping chips themselves. In this talk, I will first provide a brief overview of trapped-ion systems and the path to scalability. The many benefits provided by integrated photonics will be presented, demonstrated in recent work here at ETH, and I will conclude with an outline of our ongoing work, along with some of the current and future challenges we face.
