JYFLTRAP is a cylindrical double-Penning trap mass spectrometer located at the Accelerator Laboratory of the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. Over 270 groundstates and 25 isomers have been measured at JYFLTRAP with a typical precision of about10 keV or better. The chemically insensitive ion-guide isotope separator on-line (IGISOL) technique has been successful in producing these nuclei via fusion-evaporation reactionsand proton-induced fission. In this talk, I will present selected highlights of JYFLTRAP massmeasurements for nuclear structure and astrophysics.
