The Development of Heavy-Ion Research at GANIL

Abstract : Two scientific domains have been explored very actively at GANIL : the thermodynamic behaviour of nuclear systems with high internal energy, and the properties of light nuclei far from stability. These are fundamental aspects of nuclear physics that beams at energies close to the Fermi energy can most efficiently explore. The aim of GANIL in the coming years is to develop and further improve its research programs in these two areas. The fact that new machines are now providing physicists elsewhere with beams somewhat similar to those from GANIL will contribute to even more fruitful investigations. The current prospects at GANIL aim at better conditions to produce and study rare exotic nuclear species, and to characterize the behaviour of hot excited nuclear matter. In sections 2 and 3, the general objectives of these improvements will be described, while the specific projecs, which concern either the accelerator itself or the experimental équipement, will be adressed in section 4 through 7. Broader and longer-term perspectives will be described in section 8.
