We investigate the possible form of ideal intersections for two-dimensional rf trap networks suitable for quantum information processing with trapped ions. We show that the lowest order multipole component of the rf field that can contribute to an ideal intersection is a hexapole term uniquely determined by the tangents of the intersecting paths. The corresponding ponderomotive potential does not provide any confinement perpendicular to the paths if these intersect at right angles, indicating… Expand

Scaling and suppression of anomalous heating in ion traps.
The scaling of heating with electrode proximity is measured, and when the electrodes are cooled from 300 to 150 K, the heating rate is suppressed by an order of magnitude, providing direct evidence that anomalous motional heating of trapped ions stems from microscopic noisy potentials on the electrodes that are thermally driven.
