Abstract

Results of laser cooling experiments on 100 keV Li+ beams in the storage ring ASTRID are reported. The metastable fraction of the lithium beam has been laser cooled to a momentum spread dp/papproximately 10-6, corresponding to a rest frame temperature T = 1 mK. Laser diagnostic methods have been employed to study the dynamics of intrabeam relaxation. A theoretical model of laser cooling has been used to interpret the experimental results. Molecular dynamics simulations of intrabeam interactions and the connection with crystalline beams are also discussed.
