Title: FT-ICR mass spectrometry of very-highly-charged atomic ions

Abstract

The electron beam ion trap (EBIT) at Livermore produces very highly charged atomic ions by successive ionization in collisions with an intense (up to 120 mA, 4000 A/cm{sup 2}), energetic (up to 200 keV) electron beam. The ions are trapped radially in the electrostatic field of the electron beam. While it is on, and with the beam off by a 3-T magnetic field produced by a pair of superconducting Helmholtz coils. Axially, the ions are trapped by a bias potential on the top and bottom electrodes. The central electrode is 4.2 cm long and has a diameter of 1 cm. EBIT was originally designed as an X-ray source, and six slots allow direct line-of-sight radial access to the trapping for X-ray measurements. Spectra of highly-charged krypton were shown.
