Illustration of a linear ion trap including an axial magnetic field gradient. The static field makes individual ions distinguishable in frequency space by Zeeman-shifting their internal energy levels (solid horizontal lines represent qubit states). In addition, it mediates the coupling between internal and external degrees of freedom when a driving field is applied (dashed horizontal lines stand for vibrational energy levels of the ion string, see text).
... Rabi oscillations on the optical E2 transition S1/2-D5/2 in Ba + . A fit of the data (solid line) yields a Rabi frequency of 71.4 × 2πkHz and a transversal relaxation time of 100 μs (determined by the coherence time of the ir light used to drive the E2 resonance).
... Illustration of the coupled system ‘qubit ⊗ harmonic oscillator’ in a trap with magnetic field gradient. Internal qubit transitions lead to a displacement dz of the ion from its initial equilibrium position and consequently to the excitation of vibrational motion. In the formal description the usual Lamb–Dicke parameter is replaced by a new effective one (see text).

(A) Comparison of the frequency of oscillations during oblique, pure horizontal and pure vertical saccades. Number of observations is plotted on y-axis, while x-axis represents bins of oscillationfrequency. Each data point represents the number of observations in a given frequency bin. Black trace suggests oblique saccade, Gray traces with circular symbols are horizontal saccades and triangular symbols represent vertical saccade. Dashed lines depict median oscillationfrequency.

Spontaneously occurring fast ‘ripple’ oscillations (400–500Hz) in the neocortex of the rat during high-voltage spindles. (A) Averaged high-voltage spindles and associated unit firing histograms from layers IV–VI. (B) Wide-band (a and a′; 1Hz–5kHz), filtered field (b and b′; 200–800Hz), and filtered unit (c and c′; 0.5–5kHz) traces from layers IV and V, respectively. (C) Averaged fast waves and corresponding unit histograms. The field ripples are filtered (200–800Hz) derivatives of the wide-band signals recorded from 16 sites. Note the sudden phase-reversal of the oscillating waves (arrows) but locking of unit discharges (dashed lines). These phase reversed dipoles likely reflect synchronous discharge of layer 5 neurons in the vicinity of the recording electrode.
... Self-organized burst of activity in the CA3 region of the hippocampus produces a sharp wave sink in the apical dendrites of CA1 pyramidal neurons and also discharge interneurons. The interactions between the discharging pyramidal cells and interneurons give rise to a short-lived fast oscillation (‘ripple’; 140–200Hz), which can be detected as a field potential in the somatic layer. The strong CA1 population burst brings about strongly synchronized activity in the target populations of parahippocampal structures as well. These parahippocampal ripples are slower and less synchronous, compared to CA1 ripples.

High-frequencyoscillations... Time–frequency distributions. On the left side, the full 20–1000 Hz range is displayed for three exemplary subjects. The two graphs per subject show the ERG and VEP activity, respectively. The high-frequencyoscillations appear as a distinct area which in most cases is around or above 100 Hz. The flash was given at t=0. Those parts of the time–frequency diagram which would be contaminated by edge effects are displayed in white. Their spread is due to the inevitable frequency-dependent finite time resolution, which also causes the spurious pre-stimulus activity at low frequencies. The white rectangles in the diagrams mark the regions of interest, which are shown enlarged on the right side for all 7 subjects. The arrows link the high-frequency maxima of ERG and VEP. Most subjects produced activity around or above 100 Hz in both VEP and ERG. However, only in one subject (S1) the frequencies matched. Asterisks indicate the significance levels of frequency differences in standard notation, based on a sequential Bonferroni adjustment. No significance value could be obtained for subject S3.
