Paper Abstract

We have applied the technique of Doppler tuned spectroscopy, developed by Schmeider and Marrusl , to high Z, highly ionized atomic systems. Our Doppler spectrometer is tuned to the ~102 keV Lyman-alpha radiation in hydrogen-like uranium. This paper reviews this instrument. The systematic and random errors that are important for spectrometer accuracy are explained. Advantages of the Doppler technique in the high Z regime over crystal spectrometers are discussed. Preliminary results from a successful run at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL) BEVALAC are presented.
