Operation status of High Intensity Ion Beams at GANIL

Abstract : The GANIL facility (Caen, France) is dedicated to the acceleration of heavy ion beams for nuclear physics, atomic physics, radiobiology and material irradiation. The production of stable and radioactive ion beams for nuclear physics studies represents the main part of the activity. Two complementary methods are used for exotic beam production: the Isotope Separation On-Line (ISOL, the SPIRAL1 facility) and the In- Flight Separation techniques (IFS). SPIRAL1, the ISOL facilty, is running since 2001, producing and post-accelerating radioactive ion beams. The running modes of the accelerators will be recalled as well as a review of the operation from 2001 to 2008. A point will be done on the way we managed the high intensity ion beam transport issues and constraints which allows the exotic beam production improvement.
