iThemba LABS is developing a proposal to produce beams of radioactive ions for nuclear and material research. The proposal is centered around the addition of a cyclotron capable of supplying two proton beams of up to 70 MeV energy, with a total current of 750 microamps. While one of these beams would be dedicated to radioisotope production for medical purposes, the other would be available for the production of radio-active ion beams.
A summary of the proposal, still under development is available below for download.
The purpose of this workshop is to develop the physics case for the proposal.
All interested parties are invited to attend.
The workshop shall be held over two days and comprise talks by international and local experts, and parallel sessions of discussion groups to define experimental programme. These groups will be expected to eventually submit written proposals that will form the content of the physics case. These proposals will also define the desired species of radioactive beams for a technical feasability study.
