Fouad G. Major, ‎Viorica N. Gheorghe, ‎Günter Werth – Charged Particle Traps: Physics and Techniques of Charged Particle Field Confinement
Published: 2004-10-12 | ISBN: 3540220437 | PDF | 356 pages | 6 MB


This book provides an introduction and guide to modern advances in charged particle (and antiparticle) confinement by electromagnetic fields. Confinement in different trap geometries, the influence of trap imperfections, classical and quantum mechanical description of the trapped particle motion, different methods of ion cooling to low temperatures, and non-neutral plasma properties (including Coulomb crystals) are the main subjects. They form the basis of such applications of charged particle traps as high-resolution optical and microwave spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, atomic clocks, and, potentially, quantum computing.
