Author(s): A. Walther, F. Ziesel, T. Ruster, S. T. Dawkins, K. Ott, M. Hettrich, K. Singer, F. Schmidt-Kaler, and U. Poschinger We realize fast transport of ions in a segmented microstructured Paul trap. The ion is shuttled over a distance of more than 10 4 times its ground state wave function size during only five motional cycles of the trap (280 μ m in 3.6 μ s). Starting from a ground-state-cooled ion, we find an optimized ... [Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 080501] Published Mon Aug 20, 2012
