Charge-state Selected Detection of Photons from Electron-Ion Interactions in an EBIT

A new approach provides charge-state selective recombination rate coefficients from TOF spectraof highly charged ions extracted from an EBIT. Experimentally derived dielectronic recombinationspectra are compared with results of relativistic many body perturbation theory calculations. Electronimpact excitation rate coefficients are also obtained from the experiment through the separationof the DR contribution in the X-ray spectra. The combination of TOF and X-ray measurementsoffers a powerful tool for the simultaneous extraction of atomic quantities for several charge states.
