The atomic physics beam line is used for laser spectroscopy of highly-charged ions, especially ions with two electrons remaining, that is helium-like ions. These ions are produced by directing lower-charged ions from the Tandem accelerator through thin carbon foils. The beam line, which is mounted on a 5ft x 16ft laser table, connects to the 0-degree port of the energy-analyzing magnet, which is convenient for Doppler tuning. A variety of lasers can be used. Ultra-high-finesse optical build-up cavities can be used to increase the power interacting with the ions to the kW level.
