ISOLDE Seminar

The HRS upgrade project

by Gry Merete Tveten (University of Oslo)



The intensity upgrade of ISOLDE will make beams of even more exotic isotopes feasible, given that the isotope of interest can be separated from contamination. Beam purity is crucial for a range of physics cases, including many reaction studies that will be possible at HIE-ISOLDE. The HRS upgrade aims at achieving a mass resolution R » 20 000. In my talk I will present the chosen HRS design, implications for physics and the current status of the project.
