RESOLUT is an in-flight radioactive beam facility, which uses beams from the TANDEM-LINAC to create exotic, radioactive isotopes not found in nature. The isotopes, which are created through a nuclear reaction in the production target, are separated in mass by the combined effect of the electrical fields in the superconducting RF-resonator and the magnetic fields of the spectrograph.
The Beams of radioactive isotopes are created by bombarding a gas cell filled with H2, D2, 3He or 4He. We use single- or double nucleon transfer or charge-exchange reactions, such as (p,n), (d,n), (d,p) or (3He,n).
The following table describes the parameters of radioactive beams from RESOLUT, which were used in experiments to date. Other beam species or energies are possible, given an intense primary beam from the Tandem-Linac and a production reaction with sufficient cross-section.
|6He||7Li(d,3He)6He||18-29 MeV||1·104 pps||40%|
|7Be||7Li(p,n)7Be||25-35 MeV||2·105 pps||80%|
|8Li||7Li(d,p)8Li||20-30 MeV||5·104 pps||90%|
|8B||6Li(3He,n)8B||30-45 MeV||1·104 pps||10%|
|17F||16O(d,n)17F||80 MeV||2·105 pps||80%|
|19O||18O(d,p)19O||80 MeV||5·104 pps||90%|
|18Ne||16O(3He,n)18Ne||70 MeV||2·104 pps||25%|
|25Al||24Mg(d,n)25Al||98 MeV||1·104 pps||35%|
