We have a position available for a postdoctoral fellow of 1 year initially with possible prolongation, within the European network of laser ion sources Ensar2/Resist.

Reglis is an innovative laser ion source for the S3 spectrometer at Spiral2 at Ganil, France. Ionisation takes place in a supersonic gas jet of argon, projecting from the gas cell at Mach numbers above 5.

Currently Reglis is under construction and commissioning will start at LPC Caen, France, in 2018. The selected candidate shall take part in all its aspects, including operation of the gas cell with a heated filament, testing of the RFQ with stable ions, installation of a laser system, laser ionisation in the gas jet and optimisation of the coupling of gas cell and RFQ with the purpose to improve the selectivity. In collaboration with the universities of Leuven (Belgium), Mainz (Germany) and Jyvaskyla (Finland) the postdoc shall participate in the development of high-power laser radiation using injection-locking techniques with a narrow-bandwidth CW laser and pulsed amplification that will allow for high-resolution spectroscopy in the gas jet. In addition the postdoc shall acquire expertise with an operational laser ion source at Ganil and IPN (Orsay, France) and gas-flow calculations at IPN.
