ACTIONS

Fundamental Research:

• Spectroscopy of high-lying atomic energy levels for studies of fundamental atomic properties (e.g. the ionization potential)
• High-resolution spectroscopy for studies of nuclear properties (e.g. isotope shifts, nuclear moments) on stable or long-lived isotopes.

 

Applied Research:

• Preparation and direct implantation of high-purity radioisotopes for fundamental research (ECHo-Project) and medical applications (MEDICIS-Project)
• Laser ionization scheme development for effi cient ionization and ultra trace analysis applications (SIRIUS-Project)
• Pulsed laser deposition for various applications.

 

Innovation activities:

• Development of dedicated Source Units for isobaric contamination suppression and high-resolution spectroscopy
• Development of high-power pulsed Titanium:sapphire lasers
• Frequency doubing, tripling and quadrupling units
• Wide-range tunable laser design
• Injection-locked narrow bandwidth laser design

 

Technology Transfer:

• Distribution of Ti:sapphire laser systems to laser ion source laboratories worldwide via direct collaborative approach
