Trapped-Ion Quantum Engineering
Welcome to the website of the Trapped-Ion Quantum Engineering group!
We use trapped ions for simulation of quantum many body systems and high precision tests of fundamental symmetries of the Standard Model. The group is headed by Prof. Dr. Christian Ospelkaus.
Our group has labs both at Leibniz Universität Hannover and at PTB in Braunschweig. We have experimental setups in both locations. Our trap production and characterization effort is concentrated at PTB in Braunschweig.
We acknowledge funding by ERC (ERC-StG "QLEDS"), NTH, Laserlab Europe, Leibniz Universität Hannover, PTB and the cluster of excellence QUEST.
