Current Research

  • Due to rich level structure, long trapping time and good isolation from environment, molecular ions confined in a Paul trap are attractive candidates for spectroscopy, precision measurements and quantum information processing. However lack of suitable transitions makes laser cooling and state detection of the molecules difficult. Our group currently explores application of “quantum logic” techniques initially developed for the ion trap quantum computations, for preparation, manipulation, and detection of internal states of molecular ions.
