The On-Line Isotope Mass Separator ISOLDE  is a facility dedicated to the production of a large variety of radioactive ion beams (RIB) for a great number of different experiments. Over 1000 radioactive nuclides from 70 elements can be produced in thick high-temperature targets via spallation, fission or fragmentation reactions with the PS-Booster pulsed proton-beam. With the arrival of...

The Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source (RILIS) is the most frequently used ion source at ISOLDE because it offers unmatched selectivity and high reliability without compromising the yield of the isotope of interest. Additional benefits such as isomer selectivity, laser on/off based beam diagnostics and low emittance have proven essential for many experiments. To date, ionization schemes for...

The presentation will give an overview of the status of current activities and developments in the ISOLDE target and ion source group. Besides the characterisation of widely used target materials, activities focus on the improvement of such in order to provide high yields of desired isotopes over extended periods. Moreover the work on new target designs such as the molten salt targets will be...

In the planning of the EURISOL (European Isotope Separation On-Line) facility at CERN, the use of liquid Hg or Lead Bismuth Eutectic (LBE) was proposed as proton to neutron converter. The study on the impact of high energy protons (~1-1.5 GeV) on the liquid Hg has already been carried out; however, handling of tons of liquid Hg has some practical difficulty, which may be overcome using LBE...
