This is my first post, so please move if it is not in the correct section. Anyway, I would like to read about the physics of ion traps. Can anyone recommend any e-books or textbooks on the subject? I googled it but didn't find many things...
I don't know about books, but I came across this reference by one of the inventors of ion traps:
W. Paul, Electromagnetic traps for charged and neutral particles, Rev. Mod. Phys, 62, 531,(1990)
If you're near a university, the Physics Department library should have this journal, Reviews of Modern Physics, on their shelves. The notation above means the article begins on p. 531 of Volume 62, and was published in 1990.
