European isotope separation on-line radioactive ion beam facility

Objective

Following the results and recommendations of the EURISOL RTD conceptual design study performed within FP5, the "EURISOL DS" design study aims to carry out detailed engineering-oriented studies and technical prototyping work for the next-generation ISOL Ra dioactive Ion Beam (RIB) facility in Europe. Such a world-class facility, complementary to the "in-flight" facility envisaged elsewhere in Europe, is expected to come into operation in the next decade. It would provide unique world-class research opportu nities in nuclear astrophysics and materials science, and supply new radiopharmaceutical isotopes. The study will address the major technological problems which are orders of magnitudes higher than those currently available anywhere else in the world. A feasibility study into the use of the EURISOL facility for the production of pure electron-neutrinos is an integral part of design study; this is the so-called new "beta-beam" proposal. Synergies which exist between the proposed infrastructure and other European developments will be exploited to mutual advantage. Twenty-one institutes and laboratories within Europe have offered to take part in the design study as full Participants, with additional 21 institutions - either in Europe, North America and A sia - wish to collaborate as Contributors. The participants are drawn from the major European institutions that lead research in Nuclear Physics and associated fields. In this Design Study they provide specific technological expertise on superconducting linear accelerators, high-power targetry, RIB production, ion sources and beam manipulation, radiation safety and instrumentation.
