Trapped-Ion Quantum Engineering

Quantum Physics with Single Particles

Trapped ions are exceptionally well controllable quantum systems. Manipulating them at the level of single quanta using microwaves and lasers enables for the simulation of quantum many body systems and high precision tests of fundamental symmetries of the Standard Model.

Trapped Ion Physics and Ion Trap Production

The Trapped-Ion Quantum Engineering group is studying the physics of trapped ions in radiofrequency and Penning traps at the University of Hannover. The team is headed by Prof. Dr. Christian Ospelkaus.

We have labs at the Institute of Quantum Optics (IQO) in Hannover as well as at Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig. Experimental surface-electrode ion trap setups can be found in both locations. Our Penning trap setup is situated at the Laboratory of Nano and Quantum Engineering (LNQE), while our trap production effort is concentrated at PTB.
