8. PAC-12 Results and PAC-13
(C. J. Gross, HRIBF Scientific Liaison)
PAC-12 met December 8-9, 2005, in Oak Ridge and considered 21 proposals and letters of intent which requested 227 shifts of radioactive beams (RIBs), 74 shifts of low intensity stable beams (SIB for RIBs), and 66 shifts of stable beams (SIBs). Of these, a total of 109 RIB shifts (18 provisionally), 19 SIB for RIB shifts, and 21 SIB shifts (+15 additional shifts depending on results) were approved.
Approved experiments requested RIBs of 7Be, 17,18F, 25,26Al, 80Ge, and 132Sn. The total number of accepted proposals was 9, 7 of which were from outside organizations. A letter of intent requesting development of 10Be beams was also endorsed.
Uwe Greife, previous chair of the Users Executive Committee represented the Users at the meeting.
We wish to thank John Hardy for his service on the PAC; John served as chair of the committee throughout his years of service. He will be replaced on PAC-13 by Brad Sherrill of Michigan State University. We anticipate PAC-13 to occur in late October of this year with proposals due in early September.
