"None of the books that are presently available offer detailed and up-to-date coverage of the topics addressed in the present work". -- Rand L. Watson, Texas A&M University

"One of the major strengths of this book are very timely contributions in a number of new and exciting research areas.... I am not aware of other books covering a similiar range of topics pertinent to accelerator-based atomic physics". -- Fred W. Meyer, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Bringing together the contributions of many prominent researchers, this collection of original papers unifies the main areas of modern experimental atomic physics. The unusually broad coverage includes discussion of heavy-ion storage rings and fast neutral beams, topics not well reported. Also revealed are innovative techniques for resolving zero-degree Auger electrons, performing molecular ion imaging, and characterizing ion-atom collisions by means of the new COLTRIMS method. Emphasizing state-of-the-art accelerator-based techniques, this book is a practical introduction to the working methods of the world's leading accelerator facilities.
