The LPCTrap facility for in-trap decay experiments

Abstract : The LPCTrap is a device devoted to the determination of the angular correlation coefficient in the nuclear beta decay of $^{6}$He^+$ ions by detection of the electron and the recoil ion in coincidence in a Paul trap.The LPCTrap facility comprises an RFQ trap for beam preparation and a transparent Paul trap for in-trap decay studies. It is coupled to the low-energy beam line LIRAT of the Spiral source at GANIL. The system has been tested for ions with mass-to-charge ratios ranging from 4 to 40. Within this range, the Paul trap has been characterized. Abundant quantities of radioactive light exotic nuclei have been trapped showing that the system meets the requirements to perform in-trap decay experiments. In this contribution, the experimental setup will be described and the performances will be discussed.
