The HILITE (High-Intensity Laser Ion-Trap Experiment ) Penning trap is an ion trap for providing well-defined ion clouds for experiments with high-intensity and high-energy photons. For this purpose, ions are generated in an external source and stored and prepared in the trap. An important process step is the exact and at the same time non-destructive determination of the particle number in the trap. Using a mirror charge method, the ion signal is recorded and resonantly amplified. To calibrate the measurement method, we use a so-called micro-channel plate (MCP), which can detect single ions. As part of the work, participation in a beam time at the Jeti200 laser in Jena is possible.
