Trapped ions are considered a promising approach for implementing a small- or medium-scale quantum processor, while single photons are ideal carriers for communicating quantum information. Integrating these systems, and possibly other platforms, into a quantum network requires faithful bi-directional conversion between atomic and photonic quantum bits. I will review our developments of tools and building blocks for quantum interfaces between single ions and single photons, from their heralded interaction to high-fidelity photon-to-atom quantum state transfer.
