A single atom coupled to an optical cavity can be used as a coherent quantum interface between stationary and flying qubits in a quantum network. Using fiber-based cavities, we expect to reach the strong coupling regime of cavity QED with a single trapped ion. Operating in this regime would enable protocols for quantum communication over long distances to be carried out with enhanced fidelity and efficiency. We will report on our current efforts to couple a calcium ion stored in a linear Paul trap to a fiber cavity. In our setup the cavity is formed between a photonic crystal fiber and a multimode fiber. Both fibers are mounted on separate nanopositioners, enabling us to tune the cavity length and optimize its alignment in vacuum. By developing procedures to control the charges trapped on the fibers’ dielectric surfaces, we were able to couple an ion to cavities with lengths of about 500 µm and with finesses in excess of 30,000.
