Controlling the motion of particles is of paramount importance in levitated optomechanics, since sensing and macroscopic quantum experiments require very stable conditions. This Master Thesis explores the position stabilization of an electrically charged nanoparticle in a Paul trap at ambient pressure. This stabilization is carried out by actively driving the particle with electric fields, by means of a PID controller.
