Mass measurements in the endpoint region of the rp-process at SHIPTRAP

Abstract : The Penning-trap mass spectrometer SHIPTRAP was designed for precision mass measurements of radionuclides produced in fusion–evaporation reactions. The latest measurement campaign covered heavy nuclei (A>90) related to the astrophysical rapid proton capture process. The masses of 34 neutron-deficient radionuclides have been measured since February 2006 with relative uncertainties between 5×10$^{−8}$ and 1×10$^{−7}$. Furthermore, the use of an octupolar RF excitation for the time-of-flight ion-cyclotron-resonance technique was investigated and an increase of the resolving power by a factor of ten was observed in agreement with simulations. This will allow to resolve isomeric states with excitation energies of a few 10 keV only.
