Ion traps --Precision measurements and more

  • G. Bollen


Today ion traps are an important experimental tool. Applications range from high-precision measurements of masses and moments, realization of atomic clocks, to the study of ion chemical reactions. Ion traps have gained particular importance in the field of nuclear physics where they are used for the precise determination of nuclear binding energies, decay studies, and radioactive ion beam manipulation.
