Our research group is using trapped ions for a range of exciting applications and for fundamental research.

Combining ion traps with optical cavities
We combine trapped ions with optical cavities to investigate the interaction of ions with light on the fundamental level.

Investigating molecular ions
Employing sympathetically laser cooled molecular ions we probe changes of fundamental constants to investigate ultra-cold chemical reactions.

Developing novel technologies & techniques
Our research requires continuous development of new technologies & techniques such as fibre trip cavities and trapped ion frequency standards.
