The EURISOL Road Map Vigorous scientific exploitation of current ISOL facilities : EXCYT, Louvain-la-Neuve, REX- ISOLDE, SPIRAL Construction of intermediate generation facilities: SPIRAL2, HIE-ISOLDE Design and prototyping of the most specific and challenging parts of EURISOL in the framework of the Design Study EURISOL-DS.

The Main Challenges Design a 5MW; 1GeV proton driver with additional capability of 200 AMeV deuterons and A/Q=2 Heavy Ions; build and test prototypes of the cavities. Design a liquid Hg converter which will accept 5 MW of beam power. Design a UCx target which will make the most efficient use of the neutrons produced. Evaluate the safety constraints of the above set up. Design an efficient multi-user beam distribution system. Design a superconducting HI LINAC capable of accelerating 132 Sn up to 150 AMeV Investigate technologies for the instrumentation of the future Provide a conceptual study for a beta-beam neutrino facility.

Baseline Neutron converter Optimized ANSYS CFD analyses of optimized liquid mercury neutron converter of SNS (neutron spallation source) type The top view shows the converter with mercury flow guides to improve window cooling and avoid backflow in the converter The middle view shows the temperature distribution in the window which is well below thresholds for irradiated material The bottom view shows the temperature distribution of the circulating mercury which is well below the boiling point of mercury CERN

EURISOL in FP7 Baseline Plan: Lobby for EURISOL to be on ESFRI list in 2009 and apply for preparatory construction phase at next call in Question: Is this approach still valid when taking into account the delays in the construction of SPIRAL2 ? We envisage proposing a continuation of the DS supported by the funding agencies in the framework of NUPNET In order to continue developing the EURISOL concept: LOIs for EURISOL-NET and JRA on ISOL targets in FP7 I3.
EURISOL-NET 24 Participants including all the main DS participants to allow the European laboratories that can conceivably host EURISOL to network with each other, with the funding agencies via NUPNET, and with the user community; to encourage the exchange of know-how on technical & scientific developments in European ISOL facilities (Louvain-la-Neuve, REX-HIE-ISOLDE, SPIRAL- SPIRAL2 and EXCYT); to support the EURISOL User Group and to continuously develop the scientific case for EURISOL.
OLD: Temperature distribution in MMW target Acceptable power densities in the Hg. Flow pattern not optimised; maximum temperature ~260 ºC. Acceptable maximum temperature in the beam window (~350 ºC). Large temperature gradient in the window, inducing mechanical stresses above the acceptance limits. Power density (W/cm 3 /MW of beam) PROBLEMS NOW SOLVED
New 1 GeV/q beam splitters magnetic stripping at 1 GeV of up to 100 kW of the H - beam to H 0 The main H- beam transport is not perturbed by the symmetric wiggler beam splitting by bending of H - with a magnetic dipole stripping of H 0 to H + by means of a stripper foil H - to target 1 and H + to target 2(3,4). The spilled beam intensity can be controlled by adjusting the field strength of the magnetic stripper.
