Abstract:

First off-line tests at the ion trap facility SHIPTRAP took place. The facility is being set up to deliver very clean and cooled beams of singly-charged recoil ions produced at the SHIP velocity filter at GSI, Darmstadt. SHIPTRAP consists of a gas cell for stopping and thermalizing high-energy recoil ions from SHIP, an rf ion guide for extraction of the ions from the gas cell, a linear rf trap for accumulation and bunching of the ions, and a Penning trap for isobaric purification. The physics programme of the SHIPTRAP facility comprises mass spectrometry, nuclear spectroscopy, laser spectroscopy and chemistry of transeinsteinium elements. The progress in testing the sub- systems separately and in combinations is reported.
