RIBs: now

6He@10 AMeV

Low energy

beam line

Production target and ECR source





400-cm cyclotron

and injection line


Electron accelerator

Photo-fission induced RIBs (Project)






400-cm cyclotron

stable ion beams: now 7Li@34 AMeV




Existingexperimental facilities

Planedexperimental facilities





DubnaRadioactive IonBeamsIII (DRIBs III)


main parameters

small angular acceptance

Limited space in the final focus plane and, finally,

purification of proton-rich secondary beams is not so good.

ToF base is short enough - 8.5 m

the size of a beam spot at F4 is two times

more than it’s at F3 because of optic asymmetry


ACCULINNA separator

U−400M cyclotron:

7Li,11B,18O @ 33 AMeV

20Ne, 32S @ 50 AMeV

“Scientific facilities, which are not upgraded

after 10 years of functioning become rotten…”


* 1996 – first experiment

** 2000 – last upgrade

*** 2010 – next step Acc.2


Main results since 2000

4H – Ground state resonance parameters are ER=3.05 MeV, G =4.18MeV

5H – ER = 1.8 MeV, G = 1.3 MeV; continuum above 2.5 MeV as

a mixture of energy degenerated broad 3/2+ and 5/2+ states;

interference of 3/2+− 5/2+ doublet and 1/2+ g.s.

7H –No peak of 7H near t + 4n threshold was observed, however

the excitation spectrum shows the peculiarity at ~2 MeV

6He – Experimental verification of “di-neutron” configuration;

t + t clustering revealed; observation of a,2a QFS

8He – Data on 4He+4n, 6He(g.s.)+2n, 6He(2+)+2n, 3H+5H clustering

9He – 1/2+ virtual ground state is proven, scattering length limit

a > –20 fm is imposed; broad 1/2− and 5/2+ resonances

at ~2 and ~4.5 MeV are obtained

Dolores Cortina talk

8He − Cross sections for population of resonant states 0+, 2+, (1+) in 6He+t reaction are determined to be :200, < 250, < 125 b/sr;possibility of a more consistent explanation of the near threshold 8He spectra :E1 peak below 2+ state

10He − The population cross section of the 3 MeV peak in 10He s10 = 140(30) mb/sr

is consistent with the estimated resonance cross section for the population

of the 10He 0+ state with the [p1/2]2 structure -> publications


Main recent resultsand near future plans

6He, 6Li – Complete and incomplete fusion reaction with rear

earth targets 166Er and 165Ho at energy of 10 AMeV

6Be – Two-proton decay of the ground state resonance and

properties of exited states in the 6Li(p,n)6Be reaction

26S – Estimation of half-live (T1/2 < 70 ns) and

energy of two-proton decay (E > 600 keV)

8He –b-delayed particle emission studies with OTPC;

BGT for rear decay branches a+t+n, 7Li+n and 6He+d


future past

prepared to be publish

6He, 8He – Further study of the QFS reactions at E ~ 45 AMeV:

6He+4He 2a+2n, 6He+4He a+t+3H, 8He+4He a+6He+2n

17Ne – Possible unique case of two-proton halo study

in the 17Ne+p QFS and 18Ne(p,d)17Ne reactions

10He, 13Li, 14Be, 18C– 2n transfer reactions with the use

of the cryogenic tritium target and

interference of broad states in a level structure

Bertram Blank talk

A new OTPC detector is under construction at ACCULINNA in collaboration with Warsaw University (OTPC group)


A new in−flight separator ACCULINNA2

☻ High intensity (~5* pA) and broader variety of beams from U400M cyclotron (*with new ECR)☺ Large acceptance (factor 6,ACC2/ACC) and high energy resolution (LTOF = 38 m vs 21 m)☻ Large experimental area (possibility to have several setups, neutron and gamma array, zero-angle spectrometer)☺ Efficient work with proton-rich RIBvia RF kicker☻ At F3 plane RIB can be transmitted to ISOL line (via extraction gas cell)☺ Wide RIB energy range 6÷60 AMeV ☼ Tritium beam (I~108 pps) and cryogenic tritium target (5*1021 At/cm2)

structure of neutron rich nuclei 10,12He, 14Be, 18C, 26,28O etc with the use of cryogenic tritium target and 36S & 48Ca intensive primary beams for RIB production

  • one and two proton decays 12O, 16,17Ne, 26S etc using the modern technique (OTPC, vertex method, zero-degree geometry and others) and RF-kicker for RIB purification
  • structure of neutron rich nuclei 10,12He, 14Be, 18C, 26,28O etc with the use of cryogenic tritium target and 36S & 48Ca intensive primary beams for RIB production



‘Ecological niche’ for the ACCULINNA−2

Nuclei laying at the neutron and proton drip-lines

in the area of light nuclei can be studied.


Characteristics of the existing and new in-flight RIB separators

(DW and Dp/p are angular and momentum acceptances, Rp/Dp is the first-order momentum resolution when 1 mm object size is assumed)


Main technical issues

  •  The RIB research at FLNR−JINR−Dubna is certainly exist
  • ACCULINNA-2 could provide an ambition to make FLNR famous

in the world not only for SHE studies

  • There are certain unique experimental opportunities and theoretical

background at FLNR, people are welcome with ideas

  • The ACCULINNA group is actively participating in R3B@FAIR

(ACC-2 or R2B is seen as a low energy part of it) ⇒

common scientific program, equipment, instrumentation etc

 Collaborations with MSU, GANIL, RIKEN and other Institutes

are foreseen and welcome
