Our group uses single trapped ions to address problems in quantum information processing, quantum thermodynamics, and precision measurements. We build small heat machines that consist of only a few atoms and study their performance in the regime where quantum effects become important. We explore how control and manipulation of motional states can be used for quantum computing. We also work on preparation, manipulation, and detection of internal states of molecular ions via “quantum logic” techniques.
