Quantum information and technologies: trapped ions

Group leader : Luca GUIDONI
Laboratoire Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques
We are an experimental group working with laser-cooled atomic ions confined in electromagnetic traps. We develop two main research topics:
– the design, fabrication and test of surface micro traps devoted to quantum information
– the study of large ensembles of cold ions (Coulomb crystals) containing different species
