The HIE-ISOLDE project represents a major upgrade of the ISOLDE facility with a mandate to significantly improve the quality and increase the intensity and energy of radioactive nuclear beams produced at CERN. The focus of the upgrade is a 40 MV superconducting linac to increase the beam energy from 3 MeV/u to over 10 MeV/u, and which is based on thirty-two niobium sputter-coated quarter-wave...

To take full advantage of the HIE-ISOLDE upgrade and to make possible all experiments with TSR@ISOLDE a new charge breeder in the ISOLDE reacceleration branch is required. In this contribution we would like to raise the awareness of the user community on how charge breeding at ISOLDE can affect their experiments, outline the new opportunities and define the limits. The ultimate goals of the...

The goal of TSR@ISOLDE initiative is to place the Test Storage Ring (TSR) from MPI-K, Heidelberg, after the HIE-ISOLDE linac to perform experiments with stored exotic nuclides. With the integration of TSR at HIE-ISOLDE it would become the first storage ring at an isotope separator on-line facility. A substantial fraction of the vast number of radioactive beams produced at the ISOLDE facility...

A status report covering recent design and machine development studies for the HIE-ISOLDE linac will be presented. The presentation will be focused on the design and specification of the 10 MHz bunching system to provide beams with an increased bunch spacing of ~100 ns. The feasibility of chopping the `unbunched' background created during the bunching process will be demonstrated. Other...
