Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources- 16th International Workshop on ECR Ion Sources, 2005.


Photoionization of multiply charged ions is studied using the merged-beams technique at the Advanced Light Source. An ion beam is created using a compact 10-GHz all-permanent-magnet ECR ion source and is accelerated with a small accelerator. The ion beam is merged with a photon beam from an undulator to allow interaction over an extended path. Absolute photoionization cross sections have been measured for a variety of ions along both isoelectronic and isonuclear sequences.
