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.
