Limiting temperature of sympathetically cooled ions in a radio-frequency trap

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The limiting temperature achieved by sympathetic cooling in an rf trap is calculated with a theoretical model in which no fitting parameters are used. The calculated result agrees well with observation. The dependence of the temperature on trapping parameters and ion mass is also analyzed. The results can be used for designing an rf trap system.
