This two-day workshop on the design and optimization of low energy ion and antiproton facilities will focus on how cutting edge diagnostics help improve machine and experiment performance.

We will discuss the performance limits of the latest low energy diagnostics, as well as how their readout can be used for beam dynamics simulation purposes, as well as for an efficient control of the accelerator and experiments. 

This event will combine talks by research leaders, with opportunities for early stage researchers to present their work and panel discussions. 

This event is open to any researcher working in this field. Contributed talks of 15 or 30 minutes will be selected from all submitted contributions.

        The electrostatic cryogenic storage ring CSR 45m

        The cryogenic storage ring CSR is a fully electrostatic storage ring used to store atomic, molecular and cluster ion beams in the energy range of q·(20-300) keV, where q is the absolute value of the ion charge state. The entire storage ring can be cooled down to temperatures of only a few Kelvin. This very low temperature creates an extremely low residual gas density. The observations from first cryogenic operation indicate the residual gas densities below 100 molecules/cm^3. The cooling of all ion optics and the vacuum enclosure to 10 K temperature also provides the benefit of uniquely low level of blackbody radiation where the stored molecular ion beams reach their lowest quantum states. In March 2014 the functionality of CSR was demonstrated by storing a 50 keV 40Ar+ beam under room temperature conditions. Later, in 2015, the storage ring was cooled down to an average temperature below 10 K. At this temperature the storage time for singly charged ions achieved up to 2500 s. Electron cooling could be proven in the last two years with molecular ion beams (HeH+, HD+) with energies of 125 and 250 keV as well with an atomic ion beam F6+ (E=1.34 MeV). In the case of the molecular ion beams a transverse and longitudinal cooling time in the range of 1 to 3 s could be measured. In the talk an overview about the CSR will be given.

        Low-energy Electron Cooling and Detection Methods at the Cryogenic Storage Ring 30m

        In order to observe molecular reactions at the ambient temperatures of the interstellar medium, the Cryogenic Storage Ring (CSR) was built at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics. This low-energy electrostatic storage ring is designed for molecular ions up to 300 keV per charge unit, independently of ion mass. With internal wall temperatures of 6 K, CSR allows infrared active molecular ions to radiatively cool toward their rovibrational ground state and to perform molecular collision experiments under these conditions.
        In CSR, two types of cryogenic detectors for collisional products are available. On the one hand, movable counting detectors can identify particles by their mass/charge ratio. On the other hand, a multi-coincidence imaging detector is used for detection of neutral reaction products resolved in space and time, providing 3D information about reaction kinematics. Moreover, a technically challenging, low-energy (1 eV - 1000 eV) electron cooler was recently implemented in CSR that allows to perform electron-ion merged beam experiments in a cryogenic environment. Here we report on its electron cooling capabilities as well as on diagnostic tools for observing and optimizing electron cooling in a low-energy storage ring.

        A very compact electrostatic ion storage ring, so-called Mini-Ring, has been built in Lyon almost ten years ago1. The design uses the focusing properties of conical shaped electrostatic mirrors to reduce the total number of necessary electrodes to 10 only. Compared to other existing storage rings at that time of several meters of circumference, it deserved its name of Min-Ring because its size was restraint to fit on a single plate 400 mm×200 mm.
        With this Mini-Ring, we have thoroughly studied and quantified the radiative cooling of PAH cations (Naphthalene, Anthracene, Pyrene) and di-cation (Anthracene only). We have evidenced a fast radiative cooling that cannot be attributed to infrared vibrational emissions only. This fast radiative cooling, referred now as recurrent fluorescence, involves a mechanism that had been predicted in the early 80s, i.e., the transient population of electronic excited states from high vibrational states of the ground state of “hot” PAH cations via the inverse process of internal conversion (IIC). This IIC process is rapidly followed by a visible photon emission taking away few eVs from the system at once. The previous studies on singly charged PAHs2,3 has been recently extended to di-cations of Anthracene. An average energy shift rate of about 50 eV/s has been measured for di-cation, two times less compared to cation.

        Photo-dissociation of dimer cations of PAHs stored in a compact electrostatic ion storage ring 15m

        In our study of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) dimer cations such as di-benzene, di-naphthalene and di-pyrene, we use a compact electrostatic ion storage ring, the Mini-Ring. Dimer cations of PAHs are produced by using an electron cyclotron resonance plasma ion source (ECR) with low HF power and high pressure. They are stored in the Mini-Ring up to 100 ms in order to characterize the dynamics of dissociation and of radiative relaxation. We performed a coincidence experiment between neutrals detected by the channeltron and ions detected by the PSD. We used the Mini-Ring for half a revolution setting C1 and D3 voltages to half of their nominal values and D4 to 0 V to drive the cationic monomer fragment to the PSD. The laser beam was deflected to cross the ion beam between D2 and C1 to enhance the number of dissociation events. To record their photo-dissociation spectrum they are stored for about 2ms reducing this the background counts resulting from dissociation of hot cations. The photo-dissociation spectra are recorded as a function of OPO laser wavelength in the range 300-1400 nm. Two bands appear in this region: the most intense in the near infrared region is attributed to the charge resonance transition (CR) and the other one in the visible range is attributed to the local excitation transition (LE). The CR band is much broader compared to previous experiments by Inokuchi et al1. due to the higher temperature of the stored dimer cations in our experiment. Indeed, the studies of the cooling dynamics show that radiative cooling can only be due to infrared emissions on a much longer time scale compared to our 2 ms storage time. We plan to perform experiments at DESIREE with very long storage times like up to 10 s to study the evolution of the broadening and the center positions of the CR and LE bands as a function of the temperature.

        Analyzing the ion composition of a beam stored in the electrostatic Cryogenic Storage Ring (CSR) 15m

        New research opportunities in atomic, molecular, and cluster physics are available in form of cold ion beams stored in the electrostatic Cryogenic Storage Ring (CSR) at the Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik in Heidelberg. This mass-independent storage device operated at cryogenic temperatures has observation times of hours and allows studying even large biomolecular or cluster systems in the gas phase. In order to detect and suppress the manifold isobaric contaminations of heavy-mass molecular species analysis tools are essential. This becomes even more important for low-intensity beams of rare species below the detection threshold of standard current and Schottky pickup detection systems. Here, two alternative procedures to determine the revolution frequency and consequentially the mass of a stored ion beam are presented. Masses of a primary ion and of its contaminant can be distinguished and identified. In combination with a fragment analysis of the complex molecules the ion beam composition can be effectively determined. The methods itself as well as proof-of-principle experiments are presented and discussed.
