Ion Fluorescence Collection And Diffraction Limited Imaging From A Microfabricated Ion Trap With Integrated Diffractive Mirrors
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis I discuss the collaborative monolithic design and testing of microfabricated diffractive mirrors integrated into a microfabricated ion trap. I discuss the necessary optical and electrical systems needed to trap 174Yb+ ions. From the diffractive mirrors we measured a collection efficiency of more than 4% per ion fluorescence photon, while obtaining diffraction limited ion images.
