REX-ISOLDE  is a pilot experiment at ISOLDE/CERN with the aim to study the nuclear structure of neutron-rich nuclei using radioactive ion beams. Radioactive ions with the charge state 1(+), which are delivered by the on-line mass separator ISOLDE, are post-accelerated. A new concept is being employed, where the ions are first accumulated in a Penning trap, then converted to highly charged ions in an EBIS ion source and finally accelerated in a short Linear accelerator to an energy of 2.2 MeV/u.
