Abstract

We study an alternative method of generating gamma rays with orbital angular momentum (OAM). Accelerated partially-stripped ions are used as an energy up-converter. Irradiating an optical laser beam with OAM on ultrarelativistic ions, they are excited to a state of large angular momentum. Gamma rays with OAM are emitted in their deexcitation process. We examine the excitation cross-section and deexcitation rate.
