Our ECR, or electron cyclotron resonance source, creates slow, highly-charged ions. In this it is similar to our Cryebis. The Cryebis makes relatively small amounts of very-highly-charged ions, while the ECR makes lots of less-highly-charged ions. The two complement one another, and have been used together for crossed-beam experiments. This set of photos was taken in September 2008.
