Prospects for research with radioactive beams and targets

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Research with heavy ion (HI) beams has become a major field of physics. Nuclei of all naturally occuring elements and isotopes can be accelerated to energies as high as 2 GeV/A with even higher energies expected in the future. With the advent of relativistic heavy ion accelerators and the development of high intensity on-line isotope separators it has now become possible to explore a new dimension in nuclear physics based on the production and application of radioactive ion beams (RIB). More than 1400 unstable nuclei with half lives of more than 1 ..mu..s are known and could potentially serve as ... continued below

Description

Research with heavy ion (HI) beams has become a major field of physics. Nuclei of all naturally occuring elements and isotopes can be accelerated to energies as high as 2 GeV/A with even higher energies expected in the future. With the advent of relativistic heavy ion accelerators and the development of high intensity on-line isotope separators it has now become possible to explore a new dimension in nuclear physics based on the production and application of radioactive ion beams (RIB). More than 1400 unstable nuclei with half lives of more than 1 ..mu..s are known and could potentially serve as projectiles in RIB experiments. The purpose of this paper is firstly to point out that there are now several promising possibilities to obtain RIB's of acceptable intensity and that secondly a large variety of scientific questions can be addressed should such beams become routinely available. The discussion of the production of RIB's is divided into methods where the radioactive species are stopped and reaccelerated, and methods where the RIB emerges as a secondary beam from a suitable nuclear reation. A third section is devoted to the far reaching experimental possibilities related to accumulator and storage rings. The chapters on research will cover the application of RIB's to the synthesis of exotic nuclei, astrophysics, reaction mechanisms, nuclear structure, atomic- and solid-state physics, bio-medicine, and physics related to the special characteristics of storage rings.
