[17] The treatment here presented can be analogously extended to three-dimensions. For a discussion on the transverse motion we refer the reader to [11]. Google Scholar

[18] Here, we neglect the dipole-dipole interaction and focus on the regime where the inter-ionic distance is considerably larger than the wavelength of the light coupling to the internal transition. Google Scholar

[23] Note that ground state cooling can be achieved also in systems not strictly in the Lamb-Dicke regime, when the selective laser excitation of only one sideband of the motion is in general not possible (see []). On the other hand, present schemes for quantum logic gates which are scal- able to N ions are stricly based on the Lamb-Dicke regime assumption, see [6,7]. Google Scholar

[24] G. Morigi, Ph.D. thesis, University of Innsbruck, 1999. The equation is valid assuming that the eigenfrequencies of the system are sufficiently spaced, so that it is possible to excite selectively the red-sideband of one mode, while the other modes are well off-resonance. Google Scholar

[25] To be precise, the third order correction does not cause any energy shift in first order perturbation theory. However, here we are interested just to the order of magnitude of the perturbation, and this estimate suits to our purposes. Google Scholar
