DERICA Project: Dubna Electron-Radioactive Isotope Collider Facility
- 7 Downloads
The study of radioactive ion beams (RIBs) is currently the main direction in the development of low-energy nuclear physics. In this work, consideration is given to the concept and the research agenda of the promising accelerator–storage ring complex for RIB research, which is a proposed international megaproject on the basis of the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions (FLNR), JINR . The motivation of the new project is described and the RIB production characteristics of the complex are briefly presented, which are comparable in some aspects with the characteristics of advanced world centers known as RIB factories. In this project, emphasis is placed on investigating short-lived RIBs in storage rings. One unique feature of the project is the possibility of studying the interaction between electrons and radioactive isotopes in a collider experiment for determining fundamental properties of nuclear matter such as electromagnetic form factors of exotic nuclei.
