High-precision and accurate atomic mass measurements are vital for the description of nuclear structure, investigations of nuclear astrophysical processes, and tests of fundamental symmetries. We report on mass measurements of short-lived highly charged ions using the TITAN Penning-trap mass spectrometer at TRIUMF. To increase the overall efficiency and precision of the mass measurement of highly charged ions, an addition to the TITAN system, the novel cooler Penning trap CPET is discussed.
