Trapped single ions and ion crystal exhibit excellent control of the internal spin– and the external motional-degree of freedom. Multi-particle quantum entangled states are generated with high fidelity in view of a future quantum processor: Following a scalable approach with ion crystals shuttled in a micro segmented trap we control multi-ion qubit register, obtain long coherence time and demonstrate high fidelity entanglement of s few qubits . However, the model system of a trapped ion crystal may be employed for quantum thermodynamic studies, namely a dynamically driven open quantum system. Initially, we operate a single ion engine and realize four-stroke Otto cycle, thus converting heat into mechanical coherent motion . More recently, we explore spin-dependent light forces  for operating a single ion heat engine fully in the quantum regime  of motion. I will discuss plans for heat engines with ion crystals.
