Title: The status of the ALTO project

Abstract

The ALTO project at IPN Orsay is based on the installation in the experimental area of the Tandem, of a 50 MeV (10 {mu}A) electron accelerator dedicated to the production of neutron rich radioactive beams. About 1011 fission fragments per second are expected to be produced by photofission of a uranium carbide target. The ISOL type device PARRNe will allow a large program of physics from beta decay measurements to mass measurements.
