At ISOLDE, CERN the development of charge breeding techniques is one of the key points for numerous future experiments. We report in this article on the latest online tests of the Daresbury Phoenix booster at ISOLDE. The performances of the continuous mode were investigated for different injected stable beams. Preliminary results were obtained with the afterglow pulsing method and two injected noble gas isotopes. These latter tests are of particular interest for the postacceleration of ISOL-type beams.

    Identifying the origin of primordial volatiles in the Earth's mantle provides a critical test between models that advocate magma-ocean equilibration with an early massive solar-nebula atmosphere and those that require subduction of volatiles implanted in late accreting material. Here we show...

    The rare gas hydride radicals have been produced by charge exchange of the corresponding ion in a mass selected, high velocity beam with K, Na, Mg, Zn, or Hg target metals. NeH shows unique behavior, being produced in both dissociative and long-lived (>5.0 μs) metastable states. Arguments...
