Description

COLTRAP and FELion are two new generation 22-pole ion trap instruments developed and built in our laboratory. Both instruments offer unique possibilities to study the kinetics of ion-molecule reactions at low temperatures, and to use highly sensitive methods for spectroscopic studies of molecular ions. Whereas the COLTRAP instrument is located in the Cologne laboratories, FELion has been installed in October 2014 at the FELIX Laboratory (Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands). ...more
