A new MOTRIMS apparatus for high resolution measurements in ion-atom collisions and trapped atoms studies

Abstract : A new MOTRIMS (magneto-optical trap-target recoil ion momentum spectroscopy) apparatus has been built at the LPC-CAEN, and recently tested with a beam of 2 keV Na+ projectiles colliding on a trapped Rb target. In this work, we demonstrate the capability of the setup to provide, with a very high signal over background ratio, fully differential cross sections in scattering angle, initial state, and final state of the system. The fine control of the trapping lasers, the extraction of the recoil ions transverse to the ion beam axis, and the fast switching for the MOT magnetic field, are three characteristics promising for new studies including collisions with oriented targets or requiring electron detection.
