PENTATRAP

The PENTATRAP experiment

The Penning-trap mass spectrometer PENTATRAP performs mass-ratio measurements on long-lived, highly charged, heavy ions with a precision on the order of δm/m <= 10-11 or better. Unique for PENTATRAP are the synchronously operated five traps [1,2], a self-build ultrastable voltage source [3] and access to external ion sources [4,5].

The complete experiment extends over two floors. The ion sources and the beamline are located on the ground floor of the experimental hall at the MPIK. For stable experimental conditions the magnet is housed one floor below in a temperature and pressure stabilized lab.

EMMI

The research within the framework of the PENTATRAP project has close affiliation with the goals of the Extreme Matter Institute (EMMI) externer Link at GSI/Darmstadt externer Link. The institute was created by the Helmholtz Alliance "Extremes of Density and Temperature: Cosmic Matter in the Laboratory". This Alliance connects GSI with 7 national partners (among them the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics at Heidelberg) as well as 4 international partners. With EMMI Europe will get a unique infrastructure for interdisciplinary investigations of matter under extreme conditions.
