The Leuven Isotope and Separator On-Line is a gas catcher with a laser ion source coupled to a magnetic mass separator in order to produce isotopic beams of elements chemically unavailable in common ISOL facilities. Read more...
- increase the intensity of the present ISOLDE beams using more intense proton beams and upgrades of the laser ion source system,
- boost the energy of the REX-ISOLDE from the present 3 MeV/u to 10 MeV/u.
HIE-ISOLDE will allow unprecedented measurements using the radioactive ion beams that are available at ISOLDE. Examples are multistep Coulomb excitation, few-nucleon transfer reactions as well as deep-inelastic transfer reactions.
