Abstract

Nuclear physics experiments with ion traps started at the on-line separator ISOLDE/CERN, Geneva, with the installation of the tandem Penning trap mass spectrometer ISOLTRAP. With this device the massM of a stored ion is determined by measuring its cyclotron frequency θc=(q/M)B in a magnetic fieldB. Mass measurements with a resolving powerRc/Δθc(FWHM)≈1×106 and accuracies of δM/M≈10−7 were performed on more than sixty unstable isotopes of the elements Rb, Sr, Cs, Ba, Fr, and Ra.
