Abstract

Quite early in the mid-70s, it had become apparent that data on recombination of multiply charged ions was urgently needed for accurate modelling of fusion plasmas and coincidentally to test theories of dielectronic recombination (DR) which were beginning to develop at that time. The question was, which techniques to apply to obtain the required data? Multicharged ion sources were not highly developed. Moreover, since a signature of recombination is stabilized charged capture, and since capture cross sections from background gas are enormous at low velocities, we chose not to use low-energy multicharged ions.
