Fast and high-fidelity motional state control of trapped ions — •Jan-Philipp Schröder, Matthias Wittemer, Frederick Hakelberg, Philip Kiefer, Daniel Rieländer, Ulrich Warring, and Tobias Schaetz — Department of Experimental Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics, University of Freiburg, Germany
Laser-cooled ions, trapped in radio-frequency potentials, are well established experimental systems for quantum simulations . Here, we report on a hardware platform compound of Mg+ ions in a linear rf Paul trap. We manipulate and couple the ions electronic (pseudo spin-1/2) and motional (bosonic) states. Via resolved sideband cooling they are initialized in their motional ground state. As recently demonstrated, we can real-time control the ion’s storage potential and non-adiabatically evolve its ground state wavefunction into a squeezed motional state . We make use of this quantum squeezed state by performing measurements of residual electric stray fields with enhanced sensitivity.
