Electronic Detection and Frequency Measurement

  • Manuel Vogel
Part of the Springer Series on Atomic, Optical, and Plasma Physics book series (SSAOPP, volume 100)


In this chapter, we take a look at the non-destructive detection of confined particles and the measurement of their oscillation frequencies by use of resonant electronic circuits. This includes superconducting circuits and their properties in the external magnetic field of the Penning trap.
