    The former Berlin electron-beam ion-trap was moved to Greifswald. One of the first aims after the reinstallation was the continuation of experiments using mixed ensembles of low- and high-Z ions for further studies of the previously reported sawtooth-like oscillations of the trap plasma. First...

    We have directly observed the ion cloud distribution in an electron beam ion trap using visible and ultraviolet fluorescence from lines in the ground term of Ar[sup 13+], Xe[sup 31+] and Xe[sup 32+] ions. Using a gated intensified charge coupled device camera, we have the capability to measure...

    A Wien filter was designed for and tested with a room temperature electron beam ion source (EBIS). Xenon charge state spectra up to the charge state Xe46+ were resolved as well as the isotopes of krypton using apertures of different sizes. The complete setup consisting of an EBIS and a Wien...

    The spontaneous emission yield from the 5 d[3/2] → 6 p[3/2] transition in atomic xenon with a wavelength of 2.03 μm upon excitation of a He-Ar-Xe medium by an electron beam of short duration (∼3 ns) was measured as a function of time for a wide range of partial composition of the...

    In the autumn of 1986, the first electron beam ion trap, EBIT, was put into service as a light source for the spectroscopy of highly charged ions. On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of EBIT, we review its early uses for spectroscopy, from the first measurements of X-rays from L-shell...

    We present measurements of the (3d4) 5 D2-5 D3 transitions in the Ti-like ions Xe32+, Ba34+, and Ir55+ produced and trapped in the Heidelberg electron beam ion trap. The obtained wavelengths have a precision at the few ppm-level and are thereby the most precise measurements of these transitions...
