Paul trap

  • Taming Ions: the Paul Trap

    A quadrupolar electrostatic potential is used to trap an ion.In this problem we want to understand the mechanism behind ion trapping. We will study the movement of charged particles in a so-called Paul trap by solving the equations of motion using approximative methods.
