The angular correlation between the electron and the neutrino in nuclear β‐decay constitutes a sensitive observable to search for the existence of exotic couplings in the weak interaction. In this contribution, we describe the progress of the LPCTrap experiment, devoted to measure the β‐ν angular correlation in the pure Gamow‐Teller (GT) decay of 6He using a transparent Paul trap. We present a first coincidence spectrum, obtained during the commissioning run, which is the first β‐recoil coincidence measurement obtained from any ion trap.
