Making Light of Ion Traps

Abstract:
Physicists have captured an ion using an optical trap for the first time.

The manipulation of single atoms and ions using light and electric fields is one of the defining features of modern science. These tools have given researchers a way to play with the building blocks of our world in a way that previous generations could only dream about. And the number of major breakthroughs that have come from this technology is legion: everything from Bose Einstein Condensates to quantum computing.
