EURISOL (and the European ISOL roadmap) Yorick Blumenfeld* (CERN) *on leave from IPN Orsay
OUTLINE The Framework General Physics Case The “Intermediate Generation” Facilities Results of the EURISOL Design Study Future Initiatives
The Framework Radioactive Ion (Rare Isotope) Beams have transformed the landscape of Nuclear Structure over the last quarter century. Major discoveries have revealed unforeseen behaviors of the nucleus Understanding of the nucleus requires a multifaceted approach Low intensities are the major impediments to further progress Fragmentation and ISOL facilities are complementary and should be developed in parallel
Radioactive beam production: Two complementary methods GANIL/SISSI, GSI, RIKEN, NSCL/MSU GANIL/SPIRAL, REX/ISOLDE, ISAAC/TRIUMF High energy, large variety of species, Poor optical qualities Low energy, chemistry is difficult, good beam qualities IN FLIGHT SELECTION
NuPECC recommends the construction of 2 ‘next generation’ RIB infrastructures in Europe, i.e. one ISOL and one in-flight facility. The in- flight machine would arise from a major upgrade of the current GSI facility: FAIR, while EURISOL would constitute the new ISOL facility The Previous LRP The Current European Situation Construction of intermediate generation facilities: SPIRAL2, HIE- ISOLDE, SPES and of FAIR has begun or is about to begin. Design and prototyping of the most specific and challenging parts of EURISOL has been carried out in the framework of EURISOL_DS. EURISOL must go beyond FAIR and offer the best of both worlds : ISOL and Fragmentation

Timescale for EURISOL 2010-2012 : Transition period; contacts with funding agencies and political bodies 2012 : Application to be included in ESFRI list (support from NuPECC & LRP necessary) 2013 : Call for preparatory phase 2014-2017 : EURISOL Preparatory Phase 2017 : Choice of Location 2017-2019 : Preparation of TDR 2020-2025 : Construction 2025 : First Beam
The “Transition” Period (2010-2013) The EURISOL project office The EURISOL collaboration: (MOU between all laboratories interested in furthering EURISOL; in preparation) The EURISOL User Group (Established with elected executive committee; will federate scientific community and update physics case; A. Bonaccorso, chair ) The EURISOL Network in ENSAR (included in ENSAR application; will coordinate EURISOL focused R&D at current facilities and fund Town Meetings; 150 KE; leader Y. Blumenfeld) The EURISOL work package in TIARA : (included in TIARA application; Define and Prepare R&D platforms for EURISOL; up to 500 KE; leader S. Bousson – Orsay) Requests to NuPNET for pan-European funded R&D through national funding agencies (approx 1ME each – at most 1 to be funded) – Liquid metal target tests – Beam splitter – ECRIS beam merger EC support for global projects: Possibility of EC support up to 1 ME to expand EURISOL into a global (worldwide) project; suggestion from Brussels still to be investigated.
Conclusions Major RIB developments are proceeding worldwide (FRIB, TRIUMF, RIKEN, KoRIA…) and competition will be fierce. The LRP must propose an ambitious roadmap to maintain and strengthen Europe’s leadership in the field This plan should be based on FAIR and the “intermediate” ISOL facilities (SPIRAL2, HIE-ISOLDE, SPES) in the near term, and EURISOL in the longer term.
