S3: The Super Separator Spectrometer for LINAG heavy ion beams

Abstract : S3 (Super Separator Spectrometer) is a device designed for experiments with the very high intensity stable beams of LINAG, the superconducting linear accelerator of GANIL, which will be built in the framework of SPIRAL2. These beams, which will provide in a first phase of SPIRAL2 ions with A/q = 3, can reach intensities exceeding 100pμA for lighter ions - A<40-50. These unprecedented intensities open new opportunities in several physics domains, e.g. super-heavy and very-heavy nuclei, spectroscopy at and beyond the drip-line, isomers and ground state properties, multi-nucleon transfer and deep-inelastic reactions. The Super Separator Spectrometer S3 includes a rotating target to sustain the high power deposition, a two stages separator (momentum achromat) and spectrometer (mass spectrometer). Various detection set-ups are foreseen, especially a delayed α, γ, and electron spectroscopy array and a gas catcher coupled to a low energy branch.
