About this Item

Neuware - Over the last quarter of this century, revolutionary advances have been made both in kind and in precision in the application of particle traps to the study of thephysics of charged particles, leading to intensi ed interest in, and wide proliferation of, this topic. This book is intended as a timely addition to the literature, providing a systematic uni ed treatment of the subject, from the point of view of the application of these devices to fundamental atomic and particle physics. Thetechniqueofusingelectromagnetic eldstocon neandisolateatomic particles in vacuo, rather than by material walls of a container, was initially conceivedbyW.Paulintheformofa3Dversionoftheoriginalrfquadrupole mass lter, for which he shared the 1989 Nobel Prize in physics [1], whereas H.G. Dehmelt who also shared the 1989 Nobel Prize [2] saw these devices (including the Penning trap) as a way of isolating electrons and ions, for the purposes of high resolution spectroscopy. These two broad areas of appli- tion have developed more or less independently, each attaining a remarkable degree of sophistication and generating widespread interest and experimental activity. 354 pp. Englisch.

About this title


This book provides an introduction and guide to modern advances in charged particle (and antiparticle) confinement by electromagnetic fields. Confinement in different trap geometries, the influence of trap imperfections, classical and quantum mechanical description of the trapped particle motion, different methods of ion cooling to low temperatures, and non-neutral plasma properties (including Coulomb crystals) are the main subjects. They form the basis of such applications of charged particle traps as high-resolution optical and microwave spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, atomic clocks, and, potentially, quantum computing. TOC:Introduction.- The Paul Trap.- The Penning Trap.- Other Traps.- Loading of Traps.- Trapped Charged Particle Detection.- Quantum States of Motion.- Coherent States for Dynamical Groups.- State Engineering and Reconstruction.- Trapped Ion Temperature.- Radiative Cooling.- Buffer Cooling.- Resistive Cooling.- Laser Cooling.- Adiabatic Cooling.- Trapped Non-Neutral Plasma.- Plasma Oscillations.- Coulomb Crystals.- Sympathetic Crystallization.- Appendices.
