experiment examines the trapping of charged particles using oscillating
electric fields, a technique that earned Wolfgang Paul and Hans
Dehmelt the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1989. Although ion
is still at the cutting edge of modern science, the basic principles
can be understood with little more than a good background in mechanics (with
EIT experiment includes three different ion traps, allowing a range of
observations and measurements. Students load ions into the traps,
observe their behavior over a range of conditions, make and observe
Coulomb crystals, measure the charges and masses of individual trapped
particles, measure picoNewton trapping forces, and more!
