Paper Abstract

We investigate geometries for efficient coupling of single ions to fiber-coupled light fields for applications in quantum sensing, quantum metrology, and quantum information processing. Specifically, we discuss the integration of fiber-tip microcavities into radio-frequency ion traps. The distortions of the trapping fields induced by the presence of the optical fibers are simulated for a range of ion trap geometries and the most promising arrangements are identified. Finally, we investigate the use of fiber-tip microcavities with non-spherical mirrors for enhanced ion-light coupling at the center of the trap by appropriate shaping of the cavity modes.
