New publication out in Journal of Modern Optics

11/12/2017

Our recent work, in collaboration with researchers of the University of the Basque Country, has been published in a special issue in honor of Prof. Danny Segal (Imperial College London). In this paper, we report the driving and detection of the axial motional modes of laser-cooled 40Ca+ ions through their fluorescence profiles. We have evaluated and compared the sensitivity of a single ion and a two-ion crystal. This evaluation paves the way to the implementation of the method in Penning trap mass spectrometry.
