TIPICQA - COST Action CA17113

Trapped Ions: Progress in Classical and Quantum Applications

The Project

In recent years, ion traps have developed from a topic of fundamental research into a versatile tool for a wide range of research topics and quantum technologies. With the ability to isolate the ions from their environment, atomic and molecular ions can now be studied in unparalleled detail.

Trapped ions are currently the most promising implementation of quantum information processing devices, where many essential building blocks have been developed in recent years. Moreover, magnetic field sensing with high sensitivity has been demonstrated and some of today’s best atomic clocks are based on atomic ions. These applications have the potential to revolutionise many aspects of our daily life. The aim of CA17113 is to enhance the current applications of trapped ions by supporting Europe-wide collaborations and knowledge exchange, and to allow these technologies to be taken a step further towards their commercialisation.

The second edition of the Early Career Conference in Trapped Ions (ECCTI) is scheduled for January 2022 ! This one-week conference, organised by young ion trappers for young ion trappers, is an important event to present, interact, learn, and discuss with other researchers in the field. The COST Action TIPICQA happily supports this initiative.

Version 1 of the Portal for High-Precision Atomic Data and Computation has been released by our colleagues at University of Delaware. The portal provides transition matrix elements, transition rates, radiative lifetimes, branching ratios, and polarizabilities for atoms and ions. The team seeks community input, and all comments and suggestions are welcome and can be addressed to Marianna Safronova. Applause for this great initiative, which provides all properties of our favourite ions at one glance, with many more still to come !
