Are you in need of a commercial manufacturer to fabricate your ion microtraps?
Look no further. We fabricate customer-designed surface and three-dimensional, uncoated and coated, ion trap micro-platforms. Our demonstrated microfabrication capability is compatible with most designs (including Paul traps and Penning traps).
Translume has developed a unique set of fabrication processes to create surface and volumetric micro-traps. These traps are made out of fused silica glass, a material that has excellent electrical and optical properties for trapping.
We have fabricated and delivered to collaborators and commercial customers a variety of microtrap platforms (including some that incorporate optical access ports, and ion loading ports.
