Numerical results for the pseudopotential produced by applying our anticipated operating parameters of a 500 V RF amplitude and a RF frequency of 35 MHz, and grounding the top and bottom electrodes. The oblate Paul trap’s edges are shown as solid magenta lines. For our anticipated parameters the pseudopotential well depth is 1.6 eV. This numerical result is used to calculate . (a) The pseudopotential is shown in the plane. The dashed magenta line identifies the plane of panel (b). (b) The pseudopotential is shown in the plane and the dashed magenta line shows the plane of panel (a).
