Improving the trap extraction Cut one long electrode in the end of magnet region into two to squeeze the ion trajectories at the point where magnetic field lines start to diverge. SIMION simulations for mass A=100 q=+1 ions 2.5 m 30 mm Problematic place in extraction. Ions follow magnetic field lines. Second einzel lens added to improve transmission to the spectroscopy setup. Present geometry Planned improvement Implantation point
Challenges Transmission through the trap system (5 - 20 %) Cooler transmission has been poor since last summer (only ~30%) Install Si detectors to improve diagnostics Extraction from the magnetic field; ions tend to follow field lines Divide one electrode Shorter cycles (less than 100 ms) Find limit for Ions per bunch; space charge limit
In-trap spectroscopy Trapped ions form an ideal source without any scattering or energy loss in source material. Lineshape Peak-to-background ratio Strong magnetic field of a penning trap can be used to transport charged particles (e, p, ) to the detector with high efficiency. Conversion electrons tr ~ 50% Energy and mass selection with trajectory radius r tr In average electron r tr < proton r tr Conversion electron r tr < beta r tr

In-trap plans Near future Selecting a good test case, good yield, t½, electron energy, conversion coefficient Trap scheduling Beamtime for testing First physics proposal: neutron rich Zr decay spectroscopy Open questions How to tune the trap injection when the ejection side is blocked by the detector ? How to arrange data acquisition because detector sits on HV platform ? Later Segmented detector to avoid summing and allow coincidence detection
Outlook and conclusions Purified beams JYFLTRAP is ready to make purified beams for spectroscopy Mass resolving power is enough for most of the cases Transmission needs still improving Systematic tests of the high intensity limit together with short cycle time In-trap spectroscopy Mechanical parts are ready Data acquisition not yet designed First test hopefully during next summer IGISOL facility IGISOL upgrade is almost ready. Improved yields have been recorded with light-ion ion guide. Laser ion source project has been started to improve ion guide efficiency and also to introduce chemical selectivity.
