Safety and radioprotection issues with post-accelerated high intensity RIBs
M.-H. Moscatello1

Radioactive ion beams have been produced with the ISOL method for more than 35 years in several laboratories all over the world. The intensities and the variety of nuclei have been always growing, and while the ISOL beams were first used at ion source extraction energy, post-accelerated RIBs became available following the pioneering work at Louvain-la-Neuve. Meanwhile, a powerful production method was developed with the use of fission products extracted from fissile targets, and is nowadays used at several places. The next facilities, under construction and those of next generation, will use fission as one of the main production methods for RIBs and will offer orders of magnitude higher intensities. The post-acceleration of such high intensity and long lived RIBs implies many new constraints. This paper presents these constraints for the facilities under construction and those of next generation, focusing on the safety and radioprotection issues.
