4 Soreq Specialty and Competitiveness of SARAF (2/2) SARAFSPIRAL II *IFMIF *Project d(40MeV) +Lid(40MeV) + Cd(40MeV) +Li Reaction specification Projectile range in target (mm) 552 x 125 Maximum beam current (mA) ~1~10~100 Beam spot on the target (cm 2 ) Beam density on the target (mA/cm 2 ) ~0.07~0.03~0.07 Neutron production over 4π (n/deuteron) ~10 15 ~10 17 Neutron source intensity (n/s) ~5∙10 14 ~10 14 ~10 15 Maximal neutron flux on the back-plate [n/(sec ∙ cm 2 )] (0-60 MeV neutrons) ~10~12~10 on the back-plate (MeV) * D.Ridikas et.al. “Neutrons For Science (NFS) at SPIRAL-2 (Part I: material irradiations), Internal Report DSM/DAPNIA/SPhN, CEA Saclay (Dec 2003) 4

5 Soreq SARAF Phase II - “Day 1”  40 MeV 5 mA CW protons and deuterons  Two-stage irradiation target for light exotic nuclei (e.g., 6 He, 8 Li, Ne)  Traps (e.g., EIBT, MOT) for study of exotic nuclei and beyond SM physics  Liquid lithium target for fast and epi-thermal neutrons  Nuclear astrophysics, BNCT, neutron induced cross sections  Neutron based radiography, tomography and diffractometry  Radiopharmaceutical research and development  Neutron induced radiation damage on small samples (e.g., pilot for IFMIF) 5 e Thermal neutron source 9 Be(d,xn) d beam Much room for improvement on Ne, towards per-mill precision MACS with n/sec – 100 times FZ Karlsruhe Replacement of the Soreq 5MW research reactor

6 Soreq SARAF Phase II - Subsequent Upgrades  20 MeV/u ~mA CW    -NMR and more (e.g., COLTRIM, Reaction Microscope)  Thin 238 U target + gas extraction + ECR + MR-TOF (IGISOL)  Liquid D 2 O target for quasi- mono-energetic fast neutrons  Cold and ultra-cold neutrons  ~3 MV post accelerator + gas (He) target  A compact 4  detector for distinct-spectra of  and  anti   Acceleration of heavier ions, to higher MeV/u ~10 9 fission fragments / sec >300 events / sec

7 Soreq SARAF Timeline and assistance from NUPECC 7  Phase I in operation  4 MeV, 1 mA and 2 MeV, 2 mA CW protons, 5.2 MeV, 1 mA, DC=10% deuterons  First nuclear reactions in LiLiT in Summer 2013  Soreq is to apply for Phase II funding towards the end of 2013  Soreq wishes to complete SARAF Phase II by 2019 Soreq asks NUPECC for: Formal support and endorsement for SARAF Phase II
