The Canadian Penning trap mass spectrometer Academic Article uri icon


  • A Penning trap mass spectrometer is currently being commissioned at the TASCC facility in Chalk River. This versatile on-line apparatus uses a new helium-jet-coupled laser ion source to load ions into a system composed of a Paul trap and a precision Penning trap. This system is intended for high-precision mass measurements on stable and unstable isotopes, but will also offer many new possibilities for precise measurement of the properties of unstable isotopes.
