We have trapped the first ca ions in our new macroscopic blade trap. The ions were loaded  by laser ablation from a calcium target and subsequent multiphoton ionization.

The picture shows our new trap outside the vacuum chambre. The inset shows  the first ion crystal loaded in the trap and imaged...

Topological defects in low-dimensional nonlinear systems feature a sliding-to-pinning transition of relevance for a variety of scenarios, ranging from biophysics to nano- and solid-state physics. We find that the dynamics after a local excitation results in a highly nontrivial energy transport in...
