A superconducting resonator-driven linear radio-frequency trap for strong confinement of highly charged ions — •Julian Stark1, Lisa Schmoeger1, 2, and José R.

Cold, strongly localized highly charged ions (HCI) are interesting candidates for both novel frequency standards at a potential 10−19 level accuracy and quantum information protocols. For sympathetic cooling of the HCI, they are simultaneously trapped with laser-cooled Be+ ions in a cryogenic linear radio-frequency (RF) Paul trap [1]. Its pseudopotential is strongly dependent on the RF amplitude, phase and frequency. Stable localization requires a high voltage RF drive with low noise, since instabilities in the RF drive cause excess micromotion and thus heating of the trapped ions. Employing a RF resonator with high quality factor Q inside the trap enables high amplitudes and drastically reduces the RF noise. In order to be able to trap and sympathetically cool HCI efficiently, we are currently designing a superconducting RF resonator which includes the quadrupole trapping electrodes. Integrating them into the RF cavity will suppress coupling losses and maintain a very high Q value, as well as improve the overall stability of the trapping conditions.
