# ModeProperties¶

class ModeProperties(*, frequency=None, eigenvector=None, lamb_dicke_parameters=None)

The result of a calculation of ion chain properties for a particular mode.

Variables
• frequency (float, optional) – The frequency $$\nu_{jp}$$ of this particular mode of oscillation in Hertz.

• eigenvector (List[float], optional) – The eigenvector $$(b_{jp1}, b_{jp2}, \ldots, b_{jpN})$$ corresponding to this mode of oscillation. It has the same length as the number of ions in the chain.

• lamb_dicke_parameters (List[float], optional) – The Lamb–Dicke parameters $$\{\eta_{jpn}\}$$ corresponding to this mode of oscillation. This list has the same length as the ion chain, and the $$n$$-th element of the list corresponds to the Lamb–Dicke parameter of the $$n$$-th ion.
