toolkit to develop and analyze rf surface ion traps

Project description

Electrode is a toolkit to develop and analyze RF ion traps. It can optimize 2D surface electrode patterns to achieve desired trapping properties and extract relevant parameters of the resulting geometry. The software also treats precomputed 3D volumetric field and potential data transparently.
