Abstract

Using dichroic electrostatic mirrors, which can reflect a fast ion beam while transmitting a counterion beam, allows extending the field of electrostatic ion trapping. We present the design and simulations of a hybrid electrostatic ion beam trap that allows simultaneous trapping of velocity matched cation and anion beams. The possible merged beam ion-ion, ion-neutral, and ion-laser experiments are discussed.
