A compact radio frequency cooler buncher (RFQCB) is currently in development between The University of Manchester, KU Leuven, and CERN. The device will be installed as part of the Collinear Resonance Ionisation Spectroscopy (CRIS) experiment at the Isotope separator On-line device (ISOLDE) at CERN. The purpose of developing a dedicated RFQCB for the CRIS experiment is to increase data collection efficiency, and simplify the process of obtaining reference measurements with stable isotopes. The CRIS technique is outlined in addition to an overview of the proposed RFQCB, and its potential compatibility for implementation at ISOLDE.
