Double ElectroStatic Ion Ring ExpEriment
The DESIREE consists of two electrostatic storage rings with a common straight section, where ions of opposite charges can be brought to interact with each other at very well defined low relative velocities, while they at the same time are moving rapidly in relation to the machine facilitating their detection by standard single-particle detection techniques.
Further information on the project:Manne Siegbahn Laboratory (MSL) and the physics department. While the construction is lead by the MSL, we are taken a leading role in defining the experimental program and are taking active part in the design work. The first beam is scheduled to be injected in DESIREE in early 2008.
