A positron trap and beam apparatus for atomic and molecular scattering experiments

Sullivan, J. P.; Jones, A.; Caradonna, P.; Makochekanwa, C.; Buckman, S. J.


An instrument has been designed and constructed to provide new insights into fundamental, low energy positron scattering processes. The design is based on the Surko trap system and produces a pulsed positron beam with an energy resolution of as good as 54 meV. The design and operation of the apparatus is explained, while the first experimental results from this apparatus have been demonstrated in recent publications.
