Description

Resonant ionization laser ion sources (RILIS) have become an important type of ion source for on-line ISOL radioactive ion beam facilities due to the unique capability of element-, and at times even isotope selective-, ionization of the RILIS. The operating principle of RILIS operating at ISOL facilities will be presented, followed by the particular implementation at TRIUMF's Isotope Separator and Accelerator facility (ISAC). Recent advances in beams, ionization schemes, RILIS operation, and new developments will be discussed.
