HIE-ISOLDE: the technical options
Edited book, 2006
The ISOLDE facility at CERN has a long and successful tradition of continuous development and growth
in order to meet the scientific requests from the user community. The current situation continues this habit
and several projects to increase the scientific scope of the facility through technical developments are under
way or envisaged within the medium-term future planning. These developments will result in a transformed
facility with the label HIE (High Intensity and Energy)-ISOLDE where the intensity, quality, and energy range of the secondary beams will be substantially improved. They are largely in line with the necessary technical
developments towards the future EURISOL facility. This report summarizes these development projects.
