Current Research Activities:

- Investigation of stored cluster ions (laser- and collision-induced dissociation, chemical reactions,

production und study of multiply-charged clusters, both positive and negative, radiative cooling)

- Precision mass spectrometry of short-lived nuclides

- Properties of and interactions with highly-charged ions

- Further development of mass spectrometry and ion-storage techniques

(Penning traps, Paul traps, Electron-Beam Ion Traps, Electrostatic Ion-Beam Traps)

for the investigation of e.g. atomic clusters, unstable nuclei and highly-charged atoms
