Status report on the SPIRAL2 project

Abstract : After a detailed design study phase (2003-2004), the SPIRAL2 radioactive ion beam facility at GANIL was officially approved in May 2005. The project group for the construction has been launched in July 2005, with the participation of French laboratories (CEA, CNRS) and international partners. The SPIRAL2 project is based on a high power superconducting driver Linac which will deliver a 5 mA deuteron beam up to 40 MeV as well as stable heavy ion beams with Q/A=1/3 up to 14.5 MeV/A. Three different methods of production are under studies for the radioactive atoms production: fission of uranium carbide target with a high neutron flux produced by a deuteron beam impinging on a carbide converter, direct interaction of deuterons in a uranium carbide target, interaction of heavy ion beam with a target. The radioactive atoms are then ionized and extracted from a target/ion-source system, and finally sent to a low energy experimental cave or driven, towards a charge breeder, for post-acceleration by the existing CIME cyclotron. This paper presents a general overview of the project, with a present status of the construction phase and the studies in progress.
