Spectroscopy of a single Al+ ion via coupling to Be+



Till P. Rosenband, Piet Schmidt, Jeroen Koelemeij, Wayne M. Itano, Yohei Kobayashi, Tara M. Fortier, Scott A. Diddams, James C. Bergquist, David J. Wineland


We perform precision spectroscopy on 27Al+ with the aid of a 9Be+ ion. Using sympathetic cooling and quantum state transfer, we efficiently interrogate the 1S03P1 and 1S03P0 transitions.
