In this thesis, we demonstrate a functioning planar radio frequency, three-rod Paul Trap, loaded with Yb+ ions that have been photoionized from a source of neutral atoms, which were cooled in a magneto-optical trap. Planar ion traps have only recently been successfully loaded, and never from a cold ion source. Additionally, ionizing directly from a MOT allows for isotope selection.
