The future SPIRAL2 will be a new radioactive ion beam facility. A resonant ionization laser ion source is under development at GANIL, in collaboration with University of Mainz (Germany) and TRIUMF, Vancouver (Canada). Here the status of the project and the latest improvements are presented. Current work is carried out in a test bench where the design of the ion source body can be tested, including low work function materials used as hot cavity in order to increase selectivity. It will be equipped to allow time profile measurements of the ion bunch. Ionization schemes are also evaluated for efficiency. The aim of this project is to find the best technical solution which combines high selectivity and ionization efficiency with good ion beam emittance and stable long term operation.
