Initiatives - HRIBF IRIS-2
A second Injector for Radioactive Ion Species (IRIS-2) has been funded
(4.7 M dollars) and began in January 2006. This project will connect
the present HPTL high voltage platform
to the tandem accelerator. When completed in FY 2009, the HRIBF will
be able to deliver RIBs to the researcher from 2 platforms. This
will enable us to increase research hours and improve some beams
since this larger platform can accommodate more and varied ion source
The IRIS-2 project consists of a new low energy beamline, laser room for laser ion sources and photodetachment beam purification technques, and utility systems including environmental controls to improve high voltage operations. Several goals/advantages of this project are listed below.
