    Accelerator Complex of Ion Beams of Stable
    and Radioactive Nuclides (DRIBs-III)

    Leaders:    G.G. Gulbekian
       S.N. Dmitriev
       M.G. Itkis
    Scientific leader:   Yu.Ts. Oganessian

    Scientific Programme:
    Implementation of the DRIBs-III project, including development of the FLNR cyclotron complex, radical extension of the experimental base of the laboratory (new physical facilities), development of accelerator systems in an attempt to increase beam intensity and improve the quality of beams of stable and radioactive nuclides in the energy range from 5 to 100 MeV/nucleon to significantly increase the efficiency of the experiments on synthesis and the study of properties of new superheavy elements and extend the programme of the experiments with the use of beams of radioactive nuclides.

    Expected results in 2015:

    • Implementation of the programme of physical experiments with the beams of 48Ca and 50Ti at the U400 cyclotron.

    • Implementation of the programme of physical experiments with the beam of light and heavy elements in the energy ranges 5-8 MeV/nucleon and 30-55 MeV/nucleon at the U400M cyclotron.

    • Development of advanced methods and technology for high-efficient production of intense Gd beams from ion sources.

    • Commissioning of a new DECRIS-SC2-18GGz ion source at the U400M cyclotron for the production of intense beams of highly charged Kr and Xe ion of the energy 30-40 MeV/nucleon.

    • Conducting experiments with low-energy (6-25 MeV) electron beams at the MT25 microtron.

    • Development and testing of new methods of beam energy diagnostics for stable and radioactive nuclides.

    • Conducting experiments with radioactive beams at the U400M and MT-25 accelerators.

    • Development of a a new high-current DC280 accelerator, beam transportation systems, and technical support systems of the new experimental building.

    • Mounting the new fragment separator ACCULINNA-2 in the experimental area of the cyclotron U400M.

    • Preparation of technical specification documents related to the design, construction and commissioning of a new gas-filled separator.

    • Development of a gas catcher.

    • Development of a new separation facility based on stopping reaction products in gas and their resonance laser ionization
