"The Israeli Joint Nuclear Physics Seminars: The Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility - SARAF"

Mon, 22/06/201514:20-14:50
The Shwartz auditorium, at Soreq Nuclear Research Center (SNRC), Yavne
Lecturer: Dr. Dan Berkovits Affiliation: SNRC Abstract: New medium-high energy ion accelerators have been built or are under construction around the world in order to address nuclear physics scientific challenges. As part of this global trend, Soreq Nuclear Research Center (SNRC) is constructing the Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility (SARAF), a user facility that will be based on a state-of-the-art light ion (protons and deuterons), medium energy (40 MeV) high CW current (5mA) accelerator, to be completed by the beginning of the next decade. These cutting-edge specifications, with the proper target area instrumentation, will make SARAF one of the world's most potent deuteron, proton and fast neutron sources. In this talk the research program at SARAF, the foreseen complete facility (SARAF Phase II), and the existing and operational facility (SARAF Phase I), including its recent scientific achievements, will be described.
