Photo-recombination studies at R-EBIT with a Labview control and data acquisition system
Equipment at the Stockholm Refrigerated Electron Beam Ion Trap (R-EBIT) was developed for photo-recombination studies. A LabView-based event mode data acquisition and R-EBIT control system was implemented. The energies of KLL dielectronic recombination resonances in Li- to C-like argon ions were determined and compared with theoretical calculations performed using a distorted wave approximation. The theoretical and experimental peak positions for Li-, Be-, and C-like argon ions agree within the error bars. For B-like argon we observe an energy shift of 9 eV between the experimentally obtained peak position and the calculated result.
