An overview is given of recent activities at the NIST electron beam ion trap (EBIT) facility. The machine has been operational for almost three years. Important characteristics and demonstrated capabilities of our EBIT are presented. Selected results include experiments with trapped highly charged ions (X-ray and visible spectroscopy), and with extracted ions (ion-surface collision studies).
