New Year, new website: You’ll find all information regarding the COST Action and its events and calls at www.iontraps.eu. There is alos the posibility to subscribe to this newsletter. Do not hesitate to forward this address to anyone intrested.
You are more than 1000 ion trappers to receive this newsletter every month, and we see an enthusiastic evolution of subscribers. In order to make this happen, Alejandro Bermudez and I work on this and we need every year a small budget to keep going.
The COST Action has an ongoing open call for Short term scientific missions (STSMs) which gives support to early career researchers for spending some time (at least one week) in a different lab in order to learn new techniques and methods and discuss mutual approaches.
Regarding our colleagues from the UK, COST informs us that: Brexit Update: UK government has extended the Underwrite Guarantee of Horizon 2020 to COST. The UK government has committed to provide funding for eligible UK participation in COST Actions until the end of 2020 in case of a no-deal Brexit.
Quantum technologies are one of the major future challenges for research and science, but also a major opportunity for industry with respect to innovation and high technology. Indeed, quantum technologies and devices have already started to have an impact in industry, and several large companies are now developing new quantum devices or have started to integrate already existing devices into their products.
Special Issue in Applied Sciences (Open Access Journal): “Optical Trapping of Ions and Atoms 2020: Novel Advances and Prospects“, now open for submissions. Guest Editors: Tobias Schätz, Vladan Vuletic, Michael Drewsen, Jonathan Home, Leon Karpa
The next European Conference on Trapped ions (ECTI) will be held in beautiful Djurönäset in Sweden from 13-17 July 2020. Let us also attract your attention, that theses are the last days for submission of an abstract for ECCTI , scheduled 13-17 January 2020 at CERN premises (see below).
The abstract submission for the first Early Career Conference in Trapped Ions (ECCTI) is already open, and registration process will follow in the next weeks. This conference is for PhD students and young postdocs only, and will be held 13-17 January 2020 at CERN premises.
COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
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.
