Integration of quantum photonic systems into future telecommunication technologies, for example for quantum cryptography, requires interfacing single photons as quantum information carriers with single atoms as quantum memories. We demonstrate a programmable interface for bi-directional quantum state conversion between single photons and single trapped atomic ions.
