The realization of new radioactive ion beam facilities and the upgrade of existing ones has been recognized as an absolute priority by the nuclear physics community worldwide, a priority triggered by the need of accessing reliable information on nuclei far from stability. In Europe, this fact was reflected in the recommendations of the 2010 NuPECC Long Range Plan, which identified as first objectives the completion of FAIR in Germany, and of the ISOL-facilities in construction or in upgrade in Europe.
These facilities, in particular ISOLDE, SPIRAL 2 and SPES, with ISOL@MYRRHA, can be considered, as intermediate and ambitious step towards EURISOL, working together to realize the project EURISOL – Distributed Facility (EURISOL-DF).
The EURISOL-DF project preparation is coordinated by the EURISOL Steering Committee.
Goals of the EURISOL-DF
- Prepare strong scientific case for RIB science and applications
- Support, upgrade, optimize and coordinate ISOL-based European facilities
and projects as a necessary step towards EURISOL
- Foster R&D on RIB production and Instrumentation towards EURISOL
- EURISOL as a single site facility as a long term goal
