Photon-mediated charge-exchange reactions between 39K atoms and 40Ca+ ions in a hybrid trap

30 Apr 2020 Li Hui Jyothi S. Li Ming Klos Jacek Petrov Alexander Brown Kenneth R Kotochigova Svetlana

We present experimental evidence of charge exchange between laser-cooled potassium $^{39}$K atoms and calcium $^{40}$Ca$^+$ ions in a hybrid atom-ion trap and give quantitative theoretical explanations for the observations. The $^{39}$K atoms and $^{40}$Ca$^+$ ions are held in a magneto-optical (MOT) and a linear Paul trap, respectively... (read more)
