Abstract

Three-dimensional laser cooling of a fast stored ion beam has been demonstrated at the Heidelberg Test Storage Ring. With a purely longitudinal cooling force applied to a 7.3MeV3Be+ beam, we have observed an efficient transverse cooling effect. We interpret this observation as being due to a thermal intrabeam relaxation between the different degrees of freedom that is caused by Coulomb collisions of the stored particles.
