|Penning ion trap|
|Ion trapping device using a static magnetic field and a static electric potential well. The magnetic field confines the ion motion to circular orbits around the magnetic force line direction, which aligns with the direction of the trap axis, whereas the electric potential well confines the ion motion axially.
