Abstract?? 2006 Dr. Adam John Trevitt
Microparticle experiments conducted using a newly commissioned quadrupole ion trap (QIT) are reported. Single polystyrene microparticles are confined using three dimensional electrodynamic quadrupole fields and characterised by their fluorescence emission and secular frequency measurements. The advantages of this confinement technique are that single particle properties can be measured free from ensemble averaging effects and unperturbed by solvents and (or) substrates.
