    We study the electron-loss-to-continuum (ELC) cusp experimentally and theoretically by comparing the ionization of U^89+ projectiles in collisions with N_2 and Xe targets, at a beam energy of 75.91 MeV/u. The coincidence measurement between the singly ionized projectile and the energy of the emitted electron is used to compare the shape of the ELC cusp at weak and strong perturbations. A significant energy shift for the centroid of the electron cusp is observed for the heavy target of Xe as compared to the light target of N_2. Our results provide a stringent test for fully relativistic calculations of double-differential cross sections performed in the first-order approximation and in the continuum-distorted-wave approach.

A vols. 101, American Physical Society (APS) (2020), Nr. 2

    For U 89+ projectiles colliding at a beam energy of 75.91 MeV/u with a N 2 target, we present a coincidence measurement between the cusp electrons emitted under an angle of 0 ◦ with respect to the projectile beam and the photons emitted under a polar angle of 90 ◦ . This radiative-electron-capture-to-continuum cusp directly probes the theory of electron-nucleus bremsstrahlung up to the high-energy endpoint in inverse kinematics. In the present study, significant improvement with respect to the experimental accuracy has been achieved, resulting in a finer agreement between experimental and theoretical results.

    Ion-ion collisions between slow (kev/u) and fast (MeV/u) ions play an important role in for example astrophysical or inertial fusion plasmas as well as in ion-matter interaction. In this regime the energy transfer is maximum, as all primary electronic processes reach their maximum. At the same time up to today no reliable experimental data exists while being difficult to treat accurately by theory. We present the current status and performance of the low energy beam-line of the FISIC experiment which aims at filling in the blanks in this regime.

    Electron-impact ionisation cross sections of tungsten ions in the energy range from the ionisation threshold to 1000 eV were measured. The experimental cross sections are compared with results from sub-configuration averaged distorted wave calculations. Derived plasma rate coefficients are provided for convenient use in plasma modelling.

    Absolute cross sections for electron-impact single ionisation (EISI) of multiply charged tungsten ions (W q+ ) with charge states in the range 11  q  18 in the electron–ion collision energy ranges from below the respective ionisation thresholds up to 1000eV were measured employing the electron–ion crossed-beams method. In order to extend the results to higher energies, cross section calculations were performed using the subconfiguration-averaged distorted-wave (SCADW) method for electron–ion collision energies up to 150keV. From the combined experimental and scaled theoretical cross sections rate coefficients were derived which are compared with the ones contained in the ADAS database and that are based on previous configuration-averaged distorted wave (CADW) calculations of Loch et al (2005 Phys. Rev. A 72 052716). Significant discrepancies were found at the temperatures where the ions investigated here are expected to form in collisionally ionised plasmas. These discrepancies are attributed to the limitations of the CADW approach and also the more detailed SCADW treatment which do not allow for a sufficiently accurate description of the EISI cross sections particularly at the ionisation thresholds.

In: Rev. Sci. Instrum. vols. 90, AIP Publishing (2019), Nr. 8, p. 083306

    The performance of a newly built omega type electrostatic analyzer designed to act as an in-line charge-state purification system for ions in the kiloelectronvolt energy range is reported. The analyzer consists of a set of four consecutive electrostatic 140° concentric cylindrical electrodes enclosed by Matsuda electrodes. This setup was recently tested and validated using O 5+ , Ar 9+ , and Xe 20+ ion beams at an energy of 14 qkeV at the ARIBE facility. A resolving power of 10.5 and a transmission of 100% of the desired charge state are measured allowing a good purification of incoming ion beams with charge states up to 10+ and a fairly good purification for charge states at least up to 20+. In comparison with other in-line solutions such as the Wien filter, our system has the advantage of being purely electrostatic and therefore lacking common drawbacks as, for example, hysteresis.

    In this work a newly constructed experiment delivering spin-polarized electron beams located at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung will be described. It will be used at storage ring facilities as well as in small-scale laboratory experiments. The collaboration of a number of hessian universities in the LOEWE excellence cluster ELCH to study the atomic and molecular properties of chiral molecules discovered the lack of a source of spin-polarized electrons in the energy range of a few hundred electronvolts up to several kiloelectronvolts. Currently the setup is able to deliver electron beam intensities up to 50 μA at energies between 100 eV and 10 keV and with a transversal degree of polarization of 25%. Mounted on a compact rack, the setup is ready for use at different experiment places.

    In this work, we present a pilot experiment in the experimental storage ring (ESR) at GSI devoted to impact parameter sensitive studies of inner shell atomic processes for low-energy (heavy-) ion-atom collisions. The experiment was performed with bare and He-like xenon ions (Xe^54+ , Xe$^52+) colliding with neutral xenon gas atoms, resulting in a symmetric collision system. This choice of the projectile charge states was made in order to compare the effect of a filled K-shell with the empty one. The projectile and target X-rays have been measured at different observation angles for all impact parameters as well as for the impact parameter range of 35–70 fm.

    Electron-impact single ionization of W^19+ ions has been studied both experimentally and theoretically. By employing the crossed-beams method, absolute cross sections have been measured in the energy range from the ionization onset up to 1000 eV. Theoretical calculations of the ionization-cross-section function were performed using the configuration-averaged distorted-wave method for electron-ion collision energies up to 150 keV. Contributions of excited long-lived primary-ion-beam admixtures were taken into account. The role of different competing ionization mechanisms contributing to the studied cross section is discussed. Plasma rate coefficients have been inferred and are presented in parametrized form.

In: J. Phys. B: At., Mol. Opt. Phys. vols. 47, IOP Publishing (2014), Nr. 11, p. 115602

    The photon-ion merged-beams technique has been employed at the new Photon-Ion spectrometer at PETRA III for measuring multiple photoionization of Xe^q+ (q = 1–5) ions. Total ionization cross sections have been obtained on an absolute scale for the dominant ionization reactions of the type hν + Xe^q+ -> Xe^r+ + (q − r)e^− with product charge states q + 2 ≤r ≤$ q + 5. Prominent ionization features are observed in the photon-energy range 650–750 eV, which are associated with excitation or ionization of an inner-shell 3d electron. Single-configuration Dirac–Fock calculations agree quantitatively with the experimental cross sections for non-resonant photoabsorption, but fail to reproduce all details of the measured ionization resonance structures.
