Welcome Tobias Florin
Welcome Frederik Jacobs
Frederik Jacobs has joined the Hannover ion trappers as a bachelor student. For his bachelor thesis he will work on the simulation of magnetic fields originating from an ion trap setup with permanent magnets. The setup will enable for the realization of longlived qubit states in the surface paul trap.

QLEDS project on proton / antiproton quantum logic manipulation funded by ERC starting grant "QLEDS" with 1.6 million EUR.
The QLEDS project aims to apply ion-trap quantum logic techniques to precision measurements on individual (anti-)protons for fundamental physics tests. In particular, we aim to measure g-factors of single (anti-)protons as a precise test of CPT symmetry. This requires a method to detect single (anti-)proton spin flips. Current efforts based on classical “magnetic bottle” techniques are hurt by the
Paper on surface-electrode trap with optimized near-field microwave control published
We describe the design of a microfabricated Paul trap with integrated microwave conductors for quantum simulation and entangling logic gates. We focus on an approach where near-field amplitude gradients of microwave fields from conductors in the trap structure induce the required spin-motional couplings. This necessitates a strong amplitude gradient of the microwave near-field at the position of t
BASE collaboration approved by CERN Research Board
BASE is a multinational collaboration at the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) of CERN which aims at precise comparisons of the fundamental properties of antiprotons and protons. Such comparisons provide stringent tests of charge-parity-time reversal invariance which is the most fundamental symmetry in the Standard Model of particle physics.
