Trapped ions are excellent systems for optical frequency metrology, as they can be well isolated from the external environment. Using laser-cooling, ion temperatures below the millikelvin level can be reached, thereby greatly suppressing the relativistic time dilation associated with the thermal...

Electric field noise is a major contributor to the motional heating of trapped ions, resulting in frequency shifts and significant frequency uncertainties in precision spectroscopy, as well as decoherence in quantum simulation. This  becomes even more relevant when extending the systems to 2D or 3D...
