Title: Laser cooling experiments on a single 40Ca+ ion in Paul and Penning traps at the University of Granada

In this talk I will describe the laser-cooling experiments we are setting up at the University of Granada and the way to go from Doppler cooling in a Paul and in a 7-T Penning trap, to side-band cooling of a single 40Ca+ ion, a process we have just started in December 2015 with the installation of a frequency comb.   I will also put especial emphasis on the status on our ion-ion coupling experiment, where two laser-cooled ions, stored in different traps should be “wired” through the charges they induce in a common electrode.
