"Electrostatic Traps as a High Precision Measurement Tool"

Dr. Guy Ron
Nuclear Science Division
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab

Using principles analogous to those of conventional optics it is possible to construct fully electrostatic ion traps which act as a resonant cavity for ion beams. Such traps exhibit an unexpected phenomenon of self-bunching which allows for long lifetimes of trapped ion bunches.  I will present the principles and design of one such electrostatic trap, originally designed at the Weizmann Institute and now being constructed and installed at LBL. I will further discuss the experimental possibilities a_orded by such a trap, with emphasis on mass spectroscopy and possible measurements of _ decay correlations of trapped radioactive ions. Such measurements allow the study of possible standard model extensions a_ecting the structure
of the weak interaction.
