Course: Physics of trapped ions

Department/Abbreviation: OPT/PCI

Year: 2020

Guarantee: 'Mgr. Lukáš Slodička, Ph.D.'

Annotation: The course will focus on basics in the field of trapping and manipulation of charged atomic particles.

Course review:
The course will introduce the principles of ion trapping in Paul and Penning traps and on the description of motion and mutual interaction of charged particles in these traps. Students will become familiar with theoretical description of light-matter interaction at single atom level and with laser cooling techniques. The course will end with introduction into principles of mass spectroscopy, frequency metrology and quantum information processing with trapped ions.
