Pentatrap  is a high-precision Penning-trap mass spectrometer featuring a stack of five Penning traps and determining mass-ratios with a relative uncertainty of below 10−11. Mass-ratio determinations of stable and long-lived highly charged ions at this level have numerous applications, among others, in neutrino physics  and tests of special relativity . Systematic uncertainties include electric and magnetic field anharmonicities and missalignments as well as fluctuating environmental parameters like external magnetic fields, pressure, and temperature. The systematic uncertainties stemming from environmental influences are measured in order to find possible correlations to fluctuations in the cyclotron frequency of the trapped highly charged ions. Stabilization systems have been tested and have shown improvements, e.g. the active stabilization of the liquid-helium level and the pressure in the magnet’s cold bore, resulting in Pentatrap’s first mass-ratio measurement with a relative uncertainty of 1 · 10−11.
