Overview of AMPD-related research

Recoil Ion Momentum Spectroscopy of (Highly Charged) Ion Collisions on Magneto-Opticallly Trapped Na.

Capture processes involving several electrons are investigated by means of recoil spectroscopy. In this way detailed information on the few-electron dynamics including correlation effects will be obtained

Highly-Charged Ion-Induced Molecular Fragmetation

Fragmentation of small and large molecules, including fullerenes and bio-molecules is induced by highly charged ion impact and by high intensity laser-pulses. The charged fragments are detected and analyzed in a time-of-flight spectrometer. In this way radiation damage is studied on a molecular level.

The Al41Catraz Experiment: Ultra-Sensitive Isotope Trace Analysis of Calcium

We are using laser cooling and trapping methods to separate and detect, with extreme sensitivity, different calcium isotopes. The ultimate goal of the experiment is to determine the concentration of 41Ca in a natural sample of calcium. The relative abundance of 41Ca in such a sample is roughly 10-15. 41Ca could be very useful as a tracer in osteoporosis studies, and could possibly also be used to date calcium-containing material from the Pleistocene. The half-life of 41Ca is on the order of 105 years.

Ion-Surface Interactions to Study Surface Magnetism

When surface electron are captured by impinging ions, their spin is conserved. Spin ordering of these electrons should therefore be reflected in photon and Auger electron emission spectra. An analysis of these spectra can give information about spin ordering in the very topmost surface layer

Interactions between Comets and Solar Wind Ions

X-ray and Far-Ultraviolet (FUV) emission from comets are the direct result of the interaction of solar wind ions with the neutral coma of comets. We measure state selective cross sections of electron capture in several, relevant collision systems using a technique called Photon Emission Spectroscopy (PES). These cross sections are used to analyse existing FUV observations of comets.
