Dear all,

ion trappers are social people and love to discuss their business. ECTI is spreading over the continents and has given birth to a brand-new meeting, which will be held for the first time in Boulder this summer: the North American Conference on Trapped Ions (see link in the event section). Hopefully, you'll be numerous to attend this conference, and don't forget that ECTI will be back in fall 2018 in Israel !

ARTIQ (Advanced Real-Time Infrastructure for Quantum physics) is a next-generation control system for quantum information experiments. It is being developed by M-Labs  in partnership with the Ion Storage Group at NIST, and its applicability reaches beyond ion trapping. You will find details HERE

In memory of Professor Danny Segal, a special issue of the Journal of Modern Optics will be dedicated to his research interests and short reminiscences of him. Selected papers from the 2016 European Conference on Trapped Ions, with which Danny was closely associated, will form part of this special issue. More info
