In order to investigate nuclei produced via fusion-evaporation reactions, especially super-heavy elements (SHE), we have begun construction of a facility for conversion of fusion-evaporation residues (EVR) to low-energy beams. At the base of this facility is a small cryogenic gas cell utilizing a traveling wave RF-carpet, located directly following the gas-filled recoil ion separator GARIS-II, which will thermalize EVRs to convert them into ion beams amenable to ion trapping. We present here the results of initial studies of this small gas cell.
