Two new events in the frame of the COST Action CA17113 will tackle different aspects of ion trapping. The Cryogenic Ion Trapping Day focuses on technical aspects of low-temperature devices, while the 2nd edition of ECCTI is dedicated to young ion trappers, and gives them a unique opportunity to gather and discuss.

Our newsletter has now 1184 subscribers! The statistics says that half of them regularly open the newsletter (and probably even read it !). Do not hesitate to tell interested ion trappers how to subscribe: there is an automated procedure on the website of the COST Action at

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 !

The COST Action 17113 organizes a technical event regarding the use and implementation of ARTIQ software with the objective to promote the interaction or collaboration between different groups with common goals or applications. This online ARTIQ day is planned on 28 April 2021, the detailed program will be published soon.

Virtual Les Houches was a great School. Over 60 extremely motivated young ion trappers have followed two weeks of lectures, tutorials, working groups, poster session with a lot of enthusiasm and many interesting questions. They have transformed the event into a really special school with poster discussion til late after midnight, and real-time visits of the experiments. Thanks to all for their contributions, participants and lecturers, and an additional mention to the "technical" helpers who have supported the logistics !

CERN has made a video to promote the recent paper of the BASE collaboration on axion detection using Penning trap single particle detection systems. If you have other examples of promotional media, podcasts, movies, we would be happy to announce and include them in the COST action website. We can also take up your twitter announcements. Just let us know !
