An ion-atom merged beams setup at the Cryogenic Storage Ring.

We describe a merged beams experiment to study ion-neutral collisions at the Cryogenic Storage Ring of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany. We produce fast beams of

Astrochemical studies at the Cryogenic Storage Ring

The spontaneous radiative cooling of the prototype interstellar molecule CH+ to its lowest rotational states has been demonstrated by photodissociation spectroscopy, paving the way for experiments under true interstellar conditions.



An efficient, movable single-particle detector for use in cryogenic ultra-high vacuum environments.

A series of functional tests are presented that demonstrate full suitability for this application and characterise the set-up with regard to its particle detection efficiency.

The cryogenic storage ring CSR.

Fast atomic, molecular, and cluster ion beams stored for long periods of time in a cryogenic environment will allow experiments on collision- and radiation-induced fragmentation processes of ions in known internal quantum states with merged and crossed photon and particle beams.

First storage of ion beams in the Double Electrostatic Ion-Ring Experiment: DESIREE.

When high current ion beams are injected, the number of stored particles does not follow a single exponential decay law as would be expected for stored particles lost solely due to electron detachment in collision with the residual-gas.

Cryogenic micro-calorimeters for mass spectrometric identification of neutral molecules and molecular fragments

We have systematically investigated the energy resolution of a magnetic micro-calorimeter (MMC) for atomic and molecular projectiles at impact energies ranging from E≈13 to 150 keV. For atoms we

A cryogenic electrostatic trap for long-time storage of keV ion beams.

The cryogenic trap for fast ion beams is now being used to investigate molecules and clusters at low temperatures, but has also served as a design prototype for the cryogenic heavy-ion storage ring currently under construction at the Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics.

Photodissociation of an Internally Cold Beam of CH^{+} Ions in a Cryogenic Storage Ring.

The photodissociation of CH^{+} in the Cryogenic Storage Ring at ambient temperatures below 10 K is studied and excellent agreement in the relative intensities of the resonances for a given J is found, and time-dependent level populations are extracted.

Storage ring cross section measurements for electron impact ionization of Fe8+

We have measured electron impact ionization (EII) for Fe8+ forming Fe9+ from below the ionization threshold to 1200 eV. These measurements were carried out at the TSR heavy ion storage ring. The

MOCCA: A 4k-Pixel Molecule Camera for the Position- and Energy-Resolving Detection of Neutral Molecule Fragments at CSR

We present the design of MOCCA, a large-area particle detector that is developed for the position- and energy-resolving detection of neutral molecule fragments produced in electron–ion interactions

The multiple emission of electrons in a secondary-electron particle counter

The statistical distribution of multiple emission of secondary electrons has been studied when He0 atoms in the energy range 1-5 kev impinge on pure aluminium in a secondary-electron scintillation

The double electrostatic ion ring experiment: a unique cryogenic electrostatic storage ring for merged ion-beams studies.

We describe the design of a novel type of storage device currently under construction at Stockholm University, Sweden, using purely electrostatic focussing and deflection elements, in which ion beams
