Welcome to 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 Research Group QUEST 3 "Trapped-Ion Quantum Engineering" is headed by Prof. Dr. Christian Ospelkaus.

Our group has labs at Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) and Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig, both in Lower Saxony, Germany. We have experimental setups in both locations. Our trap production effort is concentrated at PTB.

We acknowledge funding by Leibniz Universität Hannover, the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, the European Research Council (ERC-StG "QLEDS"), the cluster of excellence QUEST, SFB 1227 DQ-mat and Laserlab-Europe.
