The stability and ion loss in an linear electrostatic ion-trap resonator was investigated by using numerical simulations. The decay of a stored 4.2 KeV Ar+ beam was monitored for different configurations of the ion trap. Results showed that the ion-loss processes were controlled by collisions both with residual gas species and among the stored ions.
