Precise positioning of an ion in an integrated Paul trap-cavity system using radiofrequency signals

The fibre cavity team has published their novel scheme to localise a single trapped ion in an optical fibre cavity. The Journal of Modern Optics publication describes the translation of the rf trapping potential by adding external rf potentials. This technique is crucial to translate ions into the optimal position without causing the ions to oscillate in the trapping rf field.  Read full article
