A pulsed supersonic gas jet target for HITRAP

Abstract

When heavy, highly charged ions (HCI) collide with target gases at low kinetic energies, target electrons are captured into high-lying atomic orbits [1]. The decay of these states can be carefully observed by means of x-ray spectroscopy [2], and compared to recent calculations. Already for light HCI, deviations between theory and experiment have been found… (More)
