Abstract

Experiments in which the time evolution of the charge distribution of Argon ions in the Tokyo EBIT was measured have been carried out. These measurements involved extracting the ions from the trap after a controlled confinement time and determining the charge distribution of these ions. By repeating the procedure at various confinement times the onsets for ions of particular charge states were determined at a series of electron beam energies. This sort of data should permit electron impact ionisation cross-sections to be determined as well as providing interesting information relating to EBIT physics
