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

    Participating Countries and International Organizations:
    Belgium, Bulgaria, CERN, China, Czech Republic, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, USA.

    Scientific Programme:
    The implementation of the DRIEs-III project, including the development of the FLNR cyclotron complex, drastic extension of the experimental laboratory bases (new physical facilities), development of accelerator systems in attempts 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 with a view to significantly improve the efficiency of experiments on synthesis and study of the properties of new superheavy elements, extend experimental programme with beams of radioactive nuclides, improve accelerator stability and reduce their energy consumption.

    Expected results in 2016:

    • Development of the infrastructure of a new fragment separator ACCULINNA-2. Conducting test experiments at the ACCULINNA-2 fragment separator (U-400M cyclotron) using beams of light ions with energies of 30 to 50 MeV /nucleon.

    • Conducting experiments with beams of medium-mass ions at 6-15 MeV /nucleon at the U-400M cyclotron.

    • Production of intense beams of highly charged ions heavier than Xe, using the superconducting ion source and 0-400M cyclotron.

    • Implementation of the experimental programme on synthesis of new isotopes in the region of super heavy elements using a Cf target at the U-400 cyclotron.

    • Implementation of the research programme on production of 50Ti and 58 Fe intense beams at test benches and accelerators with a view to prepare experiments on synthesis of superheavy elements with Z > 118.

    • Investigation of the production of beams of exotic 6He ions using electron beam bremsstrahlung. Development of electronics and performing experiments with beams at the MT-25 microtron.

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

    • Optimization of transport systems of beams of stable and radioactive nuclides.

    • Project development, development and testing of the high-current DC-280 accelerator facilities.

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