Recent experiments at the JYFLTRAP Penning trap


The JYFLTRAP double Penning trap mass spectrometer at the Ion Guide Isotope Separator On-Line (IGISOL) facility offers excellent possibilities for high-precision mass measurements of radioactive ions. Around 400 atomic masses, including around 50 isomeric states, have been measured since JYFLTRAP became operational. JYFLTRAP has also been used as a high-resolution mass separator for decay spectroscopy experiments as well as an ion counter for fission yield studies. In this contribution, an overview of recent activities at the JYFLTRAP Penning trap is given, with a focus on nuclei discussed in the PLATAN2019 meeting.
