The Munich Fission Fragment Accelerator

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


In Munich a new high-flux reactor FRM-II is under construction with properties similar to the HFR reactor at the ILL (Grenoble). For the Munich reactor a fission fragment accelerator is under design, where the ion source is operated at maximum neutron flux. The accelerator will deliver intense mass-separated beams-of very neutron-rich fission fragments with energies at and beyond the Coulomb barrier. Some unique 'flagship' experiments of this facility are described.
