The laser-cooled ions in a radio-frequency ion show a variety of peculiar line profiles as functions of laser intensity and trap potential. All these line profiles are well reproduced by a calculation based on the present theoretical model, in which the ion motion in a trap in the presence of laser radiation pressure is analyzed. The results give information about collisions of ions, and are utilized for the accurate spectroscopic measurement of the ion responses.
