Abstract

Collinear laser spectroscopy with reverse-extracted cooled bunched beams was performed at TRIUMF with radioactive ion beams. Surface-ionized 78,78mRb ions were injected into TITAN’s cooler-buncher, and reverse-extracted to the laser beam line. There they were neutralised and excited with a counter-propagating laser beam. The fluorescence signal from the D2 line was recorded with a photomultiplier tube. The cooler provided typically 50 ion bunches per second, with each bunch containing approximately 105 ions, temporally distributed with a 1.6 μs width. A hardware gate was set on the signal, suppressing the background by four orders of magnitude.
