Development of the HITRAP cooling trap and the EBIT offline ion source
- 8 Downloads
HITRAP is a facility for deceleration of highly charged ions (HCI) produced online by the GSI accelerator. It consists of two linear stages for deceleration down to several keV/charge and an ion trap for ion cooling down to sub-eV energies. We report on two recent developments within the facility: a new design for the HITRAP cooling trap in order to improve its stability and voltage rigidity, as well as the investigation of the so-called MIVOC method in the HITRAP EBIT for production of Sb35+, Fe21+, and B5+.
