The self bunching effect in an ion trap resonator was analyzed. Using a resonatorlike electrostatic ion trap, it was found that the width of a packet of ions oscillating between two mirrors could be kept constant. The effect was exhibited for specific values of the potential profile in the mirror regions for which the trap dispersion was positive.
