Design and characterization of a planar trap

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We demonstrate laser cooling of Ca ions in a linear-type planar trap where all electrodes are located in a plane. We numerically calculate the potential of a 500 νm scale trap and then characterize the trap by measuring the secular frequencies. Linear crystals of Ca ions are formed after coarse micromotion compensation. Development of such traps is important for the construction of a many-zone ion-trap array for large-scale quantum information processing using ions. We also present other trap designs and results from numerical analysis. © 2009 IOP Publishing Ltd. 40 + 40 +
