Accelerated Rare-Isotope Beams

Status

Comments

15 MV tandem

Operating

Negatively charged RIBs can be accelerated to ~0.2 to 8 MeV/A.

Synchrotrons

Construction to start in fall 2007.

Increase RIB intensity by up to 10,000 and energy by factor of 15 over present facility scheduled for completion in 2014

 

Operating

 

REX-ISOLDE linac at 3.1 MeV/A

Operating

Accelerator upgraded to 3.1 MeV/A (5 MeV/A planned) and up to 4 kW on target

REX-ISOLDE concept with 3.7 to 5.9 MeV/A

Planned

ISOL using reactor neutrons as primary driver beam

SC linac to >20 MeV/A

Proposed

1013–1014 particles per second for mass region 80–160; A/q = 1–3

CIME Cyclotron for 1.7 to 25 MeV/A with A < 80 and 1.7 to 10 MeV/A for A~100-150

Operating

ISOL accelerated to E < 25 MeV/A with A < 80; IF produces RIB with A < 100 having E < 100 MeV/A

CIME Cyclotron for 1.7 to 25 MeV/A with A < 80 and 1.7 to 10 MeV/A for A~100-150

Construction phase

Operation planned for 2011-2012; budgeted for 130 million euros

25 MV tandem

Operating

Actinide targets used to produce neutron-rich beams

Linac to 2.0 MeV/A

Operating

Routinely operates with 35 kW primary beam power at target

SC linac brings energy to 6.5 MeV/A for A < 150

Construction

4.3 MeV/A begins operation in 2006; 6.5 MeV/A scheduled for 2009

 

Operating

Gas catcher for slow beams operational, includes A1900 separator

Linac chain

Proposed

E < 20 MeV/A for reaccelerated RIBs with A < 60, 12 MeV/A for A < 240, and >20 MeV/A for in-flight RIBs
