Astrochemistry in the Cryogenic Storage Ring - latest achievements and further developments


  • Dr. Oldrich NOVOTNY

Primary authors


The Cryogenic Storage Ring (CSR) has been recently commissioned at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, Heidelberg. We have demonstrated ion storage at conditions comparable to those in cold interstellar medium, i.e., at temperatures down to ∼ 6 K and residual gas densities ∼ 140 cm$^−3$ . On the poster we will present part of the first physics results as well as the status on the ongoing upgrades leading towards the measurements on astrochemical reactions.
