In this paper we report the results of the first experimental study of the irradiation of low temperature water ice (30 and 90 K) using low energy (4 keV) 13C+ and 13C2+ ions. 13CO2 and H2O2 were readily formed within the H2O ice with the product yield and growth rate observed to be highly dependent on both the sample temperature and ion charge state.
