    Scalable quantum processors based on trapped ions require novel trap designs which enhance the performance and reliability and increase the integrability for optical addressing. Nevertheless, a simple yet precise fabrication must be ensured. In the project “IQuAn” we demonstrated the fabrication of an ion trap with 3D structures in fused silica using our two-step process Selective Laser-induced Etching SLE.

    UV micro scanner for precise surface processing

    September 06, 2021

    The shorter wavelength offers tighter focusing and increased absorption that enables high precision structuring. The prototype UV micro scanner achieves excellent quality and repeatability for surface structuring with feature sizes down to 400 nm.
