Status of the LPCTrap facility at GANIL

Abstract : The LPCTrap is a device whose central element is a transparent Paul trap for the efficient trapping of low energy radioactive ions produced by the SPIRAL facility at GANIL. The installation comprises a linear RFQ cooler and buncher for the beam preparation, and a decay chamber where the Paul trap is located. The system has been tested with ions having mass-to-charge ratios ranging from 4 to 40. The first run with radioactive 6He+ ions has demonstrated the overall performance of the system. In this contribution we describe the current status of the device, we present in particular the results of a numerical study carried out to determine the properties of the ion cloud inside the trap and provide updated values for the overall efficiency of the system.
