Title: Proposal for the New Bremsstrahlung Facility at the JINR

Abstract

The possibility to build up the channel at the electron accelerators of the JINR for performing the delicate experiments with bremsstrahlung is considered. The proposed facility is mostly aimed at study of photo-fission itself and on the neutron-rich isotopes far from stability produced in photo-fission. This paper is aimed at the modeling of the facility with the widely used transport codes.

  • One of the main directions of the research program at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna is the relativistic nuclear and spin physics. The present basic facility for this research is the 6 A GeV superconducting synchrotron--Nuclotron. In the coming years, the new JINR flagship program assumes the experimental study of hot and dense strongly interacting QCD matter and polarization phenomena at the new JINR facility. This goal is proposed to be reached by (i) development of the existing Nuclotron accelerator facility as a basis for generation of intense beams over atomic mass range from protons tomore » uranium and light polarized ions, (ii) design and construction of the Nuclotron-based Heavy Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) with the maximum nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of {radical}(S{sub NN}) = 9 GeV and averaged luminosity 10{sup 27} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1} for U+U collisions, and (iii) design and construction of the Multipurpose Particle Detector (MPD) and Spin Physics Detector (SPD) at intersecting beams. Realization of the project will lead to unique conditions for research activity of the world community.« less
  • One of the basic facilities at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna is the 6 A GeV Nuclotron, which has replaced the old weak focusing 10-GeV proton accelerator Synchrophasotron. The first relativistic nuclear beams with the energy of 4.2 A GeV were obtained at the Synchrophasotron in 1971. Since that time, relativistic nuclear physics has been one of the main directions of the JINR research program. In the coming years, the new JINR flagship program assumes the experimental study of hot and dense strongly interacting QCD matter at the new JINR facility. This goal is proposed tomore » be reached by (i) development of the existing Nuclotron accelerator facility as a basis for generation of intense beams over atomic mass range from protons to uranium and light polarized ions, (ii) design and construction of the Nuclotron-based heavy Ion Collider fAcility (NICA) with the maximum nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass collision energy of {radical}s{sub NN} = 9 GeV and averaged luminosity 10{sup 27} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1}, and (iii) design and construction of the Multipurpose Particle Detector (MPD) at intersecting beams. Realization of the project will lead to unique conditions for research activity of the world community. The NICA energy region is of major interest because the highest nuclear (baryonic) density under laboratory conditions can be reached there. Generation of intense polarized light nuclear beams aimed at investigation of polarization phenomena at the Nuclotron is foreseen.« less
  • A new scientific program is proposed at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna aimed at studies of hot and dense baryonic matter in the wide energy range from 2 GeV/u kinetic energy in fixed target experiments to {radical}s{sub NN} = 4 - 11 GeV/u in the collider mode. To realize this program the development of the JINR accelerator facility in high-energy physics (HEP) has been started. This facility is based on the existing superconducting synchrotron-the Nuclotron. The program foresees both experiments at the beams extracted from the Nuclotron, and the construction of a heavy-ion collider-the Nuclotron-based Ionmore » Collider fAcility (NICA) which is designed to reach the required parameters with an average luminosity of L = 10{sup 27} cm{sup -2} s{sup -1}.« less
  • A Proposal for a future Radioactive Beams Facility has been developed based on ISIS, the world's brightest pulsed neutron source. Radioactive ions are produced by the spallation process driven by a 100 {mu}A, 800 MeV proton beam delivered from the ISIS synchrotron accelerator. This is ten times more powerful than currently available in the world today, and follows on from the successful work performed by the RIST project to develop a high power radioactive beam target for such a facility. The proposed design provides for both low (200 keV), and high energy (10 MeV/A) radioactive beams with high to mediummore » mass resolution. A flexible facility layout allows the maximum simultaneous and independent use of the radioactive beams by a number of different users. An overview of the proposed facility is presented.« less
