Abstract

Several scientific committees, such as NUPECC [1], have established that neutron-rich beams will provide a wealth of new opportunities for nuclear physics studies. The proton-induced fission of actinide material is a proven mechanism for the production of neutron-rich nuclei, but, within the Eurisol project [2], new innovations are being tested with the goal of increasing current fission rates by three orders of magnitude.
