IonTech: Techniques for Trapped Ions
COST-IOTA Workshop, Siegen, 7‐ 9 May 2012
Trapping of charged or neutral atoms and molecules is essential for very diverse research fields including astrophysics, chemistry, precision measurements in physics, and quantum information science. In addition, mass spectrometers widely used in research and industry often rely on similar technologies. This workshop will address technical challenges in trapping and manipulating particles that arise in many such experimental applications independent of their particular research background. Emphasis will be on modern laser light and microwave/ radio-frequency sources and their use in sophisticated trapping experiments, as well as cutting-edge micro- structured traps. This workshop will offer tutorials particularly suited for students and postdocs who wish to gain an overview of and insight into these experimental techniques and technology.
Participants are encouraged to contribute to the workshop by presenting their work in the form of a poster.
Supported by the COST network “Ion Traps for Tomorrows Applications“
