The LPCTrap for the measurement of the β-ν correlation in 6He

Abstract : The application of traps to precision measurements of the β-ν angular correlation coefficient a in nuclear β-decay is pursued by several laboratories world wide. Various nuclear transitions are addressed and different trap devices are used. At GANIL, a novel transparent Paul trap (LPCTrap) has been built downstream from the SPIRAL source to determine a in the pure Gamow-Teller decay of 6He. This transition is driven by the axial-vector interaction. The forbidden tensor interaction may be observed through a precise measurement of a. The LPCTrap consists of an RFQ-Buncher, a transparent Paul trap, and the detection system. It is currently the only facility that uses a Paul trap with a novel geometry to perform high-precision nuclear physics experiments. All the elements have been tested and meet the requirements. In this contribution we give a short status report of the project underlining the highlights achieved so far.
