Stylus ion trap for enhanced access and sensing

  title={Stylus ion trap for enhanced access and sensing},
  author={Robert Maiwald and Dietrich Leibfried and Joe Britton and James C. Bergquist and Gerd Leuchs and David J. Wineland},
Small, controllable, highly accessible quantum systems can serve as probes at the single-quantum level to study a number of physical effects, for example in quantum optics or for electricand magnetic-field sensing. The applicability of trapped atomic ions as probes is highly dependent on the measurement situation at hand and thus calls for specialized traps. Previous approaches for ion traps with enhanced optical access included traps consisting of a single ring electrode1,2 or two opposing… CONTINUE READING
