An isochronous behaviour has been observed for electrons within a unique, ultra low energy electrostatic storage ring when operating using asymmetric lens potentials. In this work, isochronous refers to an unchanging temporal width of the stored pulse with increasing storage time. Evidence of changing behaviour from dispersive to isochronous has also been observed when storing singly and doubly charged ions. Isochronous behaviour is important when using the storage ring as a mass spectrometer. These observations have been investigated for the purpose of improving the mass resolution of the storage ring. A complete discussion of how this behaviour was observed and a comparison to similar observations in other electrostatic storage devices are presented in this thesis.
