Here is 2021 ! We wish you an exciting New Year, far away from all viruses, full of new ideas, with lots of success in your experiments, theories and other projects, and we are looking forward to meeting again in the not too far future!

The COST office is taking a survey on virtual networking. If you have any bright ideas what and how we can implement interactions between Ion Trappers in the next months, you are very welcome to reply to this newsletter message. Some "technical" coffee breaks or virtual literature clubs could allow to spread information more widely. And of course you are all invited to the Precision Physics and Fundamental Symmetries seminar (see more in this November issue).

Greece is a new member of COST Action TIPICQA, bringing the number of direct member states to 24. Welcome to Greece! Lockdown measures are coming back to (European) labs, we sincerely hope that you and your ions are all safe and well trapped.

Due to the cancellation of many events this year, the organisers of ECTI and NACTI have agreed to shift the calendar by one year, so that ECTI will be held in 2021 and NACTI in 2022. More details soon to come. Our well-known training school in Les Houches is open for pre-registration (see below). We cross our fingers that January in Les Houches will be on-site and in-snow!

There has been a large variety of online tools and meeting platforms throughout the lockdown, the COST office has shared a number of these tools for online meetings on its webpage, which you might find helpful  https://www.cost.eu/cost-actions/online-networking-tips/. Hopefully, we will not need them and can continue to look forward to some face-to-face meetings  !

The last few months have been challenging, with not many news from the labs. However, the ever-growing international ion trap company population has been very successful in funding, awards and press coverage. We'll try to follow this rapid evolution, but for those who need their information faster, do not hesitate to subscribe to our Twitter account @tipicqa which closely follows @Ion_busters and other fore-front ion trappers.

25 years of the Cirac-Zoller controlled-NOT gate have changed the landscape in ion trapping, putting stored ions at the heart of quantum information processing. Read Iulia Georgescu's review of this ground-breaking work ...

Two months at home and we are craving to get back to our trapped friends. We hope that you still benefit from the offer of webconferences and seminars. In view of the exceptional circumstances, the ECTI conference will NOT take place in July 2020. Alternatives are being discussed and more information is to come soon.

Confinement (as it is called in France) - isn't that the optimal state for ion trappers? The situation is difficult, but as physicists we are all aware that only the decrease of the interaction term can halt the growing curve. There are still plenty of things to do, but stay at home !!! We will be happy to spread news about your virtual seminars, courses and ongoing remote activities, please keep us informed !

Today's #preprint demonstrates the most ambitous crossover in history. #NVCenters and #TrappedIons.

This papers shows how ions in a #paultrap can be 'extracted' to create deterministically placed NV Centers embedded in diamond.

Check out our last preprint https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.11235 where we derive a master equation for a bath of driven two-level systems. Modelling such baths is key for understanding and controlling low-temperature decoherence. Congrats Katja! @CarlosGBall @iqoqi @uniinnsbruck
