Applying a magnetic eld gradient to a trapped ion allows long-wavelength microwave radiation to produce a mechanical force on the ion's motion when internal transitions are driven. We demonstrate such a coupling using a single trapped 171Yb+ ion, and use it to produce entanglement between the spin and motional state, an essential step towards using such a eld gradient to implement multiqubit operations.
