We experimentally demonstrate microwave control of the motional state of a trapped ion placed in a state-dependent potential generated by a running optical lattice. Both the optical lattice depth and the running lattice frequency provide tunability of the spin-motion coupling strength. The spin-motional coupling is exploited to demonstrate sideband cooling of a ^{171}Yb^{+} ion to the ground state of motion.

Trapped-Ion Spin-Motion Coupling with Microwaves and a Near-Motional Oscillating Magnetic Field Gradient.
TLDR
This work presents a new method of spin-motion coupling for trapped ions using microwaves and a magnetic field gradient oscillating close to the ions' motional frequency and performs resolved-sideband cooling of a single motional mode to its ground state.
Versatile laser-free trapped-ion entangling gates
We present a general theory for laser-free entangling gates with trapped-ion hyperfine qubits, using either static or oscillating magnetic-field gradients combined with a pair of uniform microwave
Quantum Parametric Oscillator with Trapped Ions.
TLDR
The Coulomb interaction between two trapped ions is exploited to achieve strong nonlinear coupling between normal modes of motion at the single-phonon level and this coupling is applied to directly measure the parity and Wigner functions of the ions' motional states.
High-Fidelity Manipulation of the Quantized Motion of a Single Atom via Stern–Gerlach Splitting
We demonstrate high-fidelity manipulation of the quantized motion of a single 87Rb atom in an optical tweezer via microwave couplings induced by Stern–Gerlach splitting. The Stern–Gerlach splitting

We examine a range of effects arising from ac magnetic fields in high precision metrology. These results are directly relevant to high precision measurements, and accuracy assessments for
Quantum Simulation with a Trilinear Hamiltonian.
TLDR
The anharmonicity of the Coulomb potential in a linear trapped three-ion crystal is employed to simulate the interaction of an atom and light as described by the Tavis-Cummings model and the process of nondegenerate parametric down-conversion in the regime of a depleted pump.
Hexagonal Plaquette Spin-spin Interactions and Quantum Magnetism in a Two-dimensional Ion Crystal
We propose a trapped ion scheme en route to realize spin Hamiltonians on a Kagome lattice which, at low energies, are described by emergent Z2 gauge fields, and support a topological quantum spin
Single-atom heat engine as a sensitive thermal probe
We propose employing a quantum heat engine as a sensitive probe for thermal baths. In particular, we study a single-atom Otto engine operating in an open thermodynamic cycle. Owing to its cyclic
Hybrid Quantum Computing with Conditional Beam Splitter Gate in Trapped Ion System.
TLDR
This work realizes a nonlinear gate for universal quantum computing that swaps the quantum states of two motional modes, depending on the ion's internal state, and demonstrates its applications for quantum state overlap measurements, single-shot parity measurement, and generation of NOON states.
