Abstract

We carried out a demonstrative electron scattering experiment using a novel ion-trap target exclusively developed for short-lived highly unstable nuclei. Using stable Cs133 ion as a target, this experiment completely mimicked electron scattering off short-lived nuclei. Achieving a luminosity higher than 1026cm-2s-1 with around only 106 trapped ions on the electron beam, the angular distribution of elastic scattering was successfully measured. This experiment clearly demonstrates that electron scattering off rarely produced short-lived nuclei is practical with this target technique.
