Research Title
TITAN: Triumf's Ion Trap for Atomic and Nuclear Science.

Abstract

We employ a Penning trap (combination of a strong homogenous magnet field and a weak electric field) to trap and store single highly charged ions. The main goal of our research on short-lived exotic isotopes is to carry out precision mass measurements for a variety of reasons. To help testing the Standard Model of weak interaction, being one, but also for better understanding and modelling nuclear astrophysics paths of the synthesis of the heavy elements in the universe.
