Crystal of Yb+ ions

In the group Hybrid atom-ion Quantum Systems, we study mixtures of cold neutral atoms interacting with trapped ions. Our research group started on December 1 2013 in Mainz and we moved to Amsterdam in March 2016.

Our funding is provided by the European Research Counsil via the ERC Starting Grant Hybrid atom-ion Quantum Systems and by the Netherlands Scientific Organization via the Vidi grant Trapped ions in strongly polarizable atomic media.
