ABSTRACT: CRYRING is a small synchrotron and storage ring equipped with electron cooling. Highly charged ions from the electron beam ion source CRYSIS or singly charged ions from the plasmatron source MINIS are injected via an RFQ into the ring. The facility is in the commissioning phase. Full design energy has been achieved and electron cooling demonstrated both for atomic and molecular ions. The experimental program started in August with two projects, dissociative recombination of H+3 ions and radiative recombination to deuterons. The status as of September 20, 1992, is reported.
