The Aluminum-quantum-logic team has recently observed coherent excitation of the logic transition in a single trapped Aluminum-ion. Now also coherent excitation of the clock transition was achieved. A scan of the clock transition is shown in the picture with a linewidth of 43Hz (FWHM) for a gaussian...
