Paul Hess: Trapped Ions


The strength of the Coulomb force allows individual charged atoms to be confined in deep 3D traps created by static and oscillating electric fields. These RF Paul traps allow ions to be levitated in high vacuum enclosures, with excellent isolation from their environment. This has led to a number of applications, including precision measurements of fundamental constants, atomic clocks, and long-lived quantum memories. We will discuss the mathematics and some common experimental implementations of ion traps.
