Atomic physics with highly charged ions and X-rays
Homepage: Atomic Physics with Highly-Charged Ions
The current research program focus on the investigation of hard X-ray radiation from charged particle collisions or photon-matter interactions.
Our special interest lies on the study of simple atomic systems in the widely unexplored domain of heavy high-Z ions in order to test and to advance our basic knowledge about the physics of strong fields. These investigations are complemented by the studies of processes which appear in high intense laser fields or at synchrotron facilities.
Within our experimental campaigns various X-ray detection systems such as standard X-ray detectors, 2D position-sensitive detectors, crystal spectrometers, X-ray CCDs and micro-calorimeters are used.
