Ion Traps for Quantum Technologies
Ion traps are a versatile tool for trapping ions in vacuum. They are used to implement technologies such as quantum computing, quantum simulation, atomic clocks, mass spectrometers and quantum sensors.
The benefits of using diamond wafers as the base material for ion traps are:
- tight machining tolerances
- low CTE
- the possibilty of generating a strong trap potential with a few hundred micrometers ion-to-electrode spacing
- improved heat dissipation
- good rf dielectric properties
Specifications and options:
The ion traps consist of a high-purity diamond plate machined by high precision laser cutting and three-dimensional gold coatings on top and side surfaces. The design is usually provided by the customer.
