Commissioning of SPIRAL, the GANIL radioactive beam facility

Abstract : SPIRAL, the Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) Facility at GANIL, Caen will use the high intensity, heavy ion beams of GANIL for the production of radioactive species by the ISOL method. The Radioactive Beams produced by the target and source assembly, will be accelerated up to a maximum energy of 25 MeV/u by the new cyclotron CIME. Preliminary tests of CIME with stable ions were presented in the previous cyclotron conference at Caen in 1998. Since then, important progress were made in the commissioning of CIME. They are presented in this paper as well as the present status of the delivery of the administrative authorizations which are needed for the production of the first radioactive beams by the facility.
