us take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy, healthy and
successful New Year ! The network will organize many exciting events,
starting with a 2
week-School in Les Houches tomorrow, and we are looking forward
to meet you on one of those occasions.
in 2012, we would like to welcome
NIST colleagues who are now officially affiliated to the
Network; other groups have started the process to join
We are still looking for a dynamic young researcher who will use his or
her scientific and up-to-date knowledge as a highlight editor for this
May we also remind you to acknowledge the Action in your
collaborative work and
has joined the Action as an
offical member, represented on
the MC by D Leibfried. link
Blatt is the recipient of the
Stern-Gerlach medal 2012 of the German
Physical Society. Congratulations ! more
first edition of the Newsletter of the STREP project on
Coulomb Crystals (PICC) can be read here
Blaum from MPI für Kernphysik, Heidelberg, has been awarded
ERC Advanced Grant for "MEFUCO - Precision Measurements
of Fundamental Constants with Penning Traps". more
are looking for a dynamic postdoc or PhD
student to serve as "highlight" editor for this
is there for your announcements, jobs and publications. Feel
free to post items!
the workshop on "techniques for
trapped Ions" is scheduled in
Siegen/D from 7 to 9 May 2012. Details on the Action website
conference will take place from 9-14 September in Obergurgl/Austria. more
postdoc position is available in M Hass's group at the Weizmann
Institute on "Precision measurements of the β−ν correlation in
the decay of 6He using an electrostatic ion trap". Details
