    Ion-beam loss induced desorption is a well known intensity limitation for low charge state heavy ion accelerators. Therefore dedicated measurements were performed, e.g., at CERN and at GSI in the last few years. In this work we will summarize results obtained at GSI with a focus on a observed...
