The Rare Isotope Science Project (RISP) was established in December 2011 in order to carry out the technical design and the establishment of the accelerator complex (RAON) for the rare isotope science in Korea. The rare isotope accelerator at RAON will provide both stable and rare isotope heavy-ion beams the energy range from a few MeV/nucleon to a few hundreds of MeV/nucleon for researches in fields of basic and applied science. Large Acceptance Multipurpose Spectrometer (LAMPS) at RAON is a heavy-ion collision experimental facility for studying nuclear symmetry energy by using rare isotope beams. Two different experimental setups of LAMPS are designed for covering entire energy range at RAON. One is for low energy (< 18.5 MeV/nucleon) heavy-ion collision experiment for day-1 experiments. This experimental setup consists of an array of ΔE-E Si-CsI detectors, a gamma array to cover backward polar angle, and a forward neutron wall. The other is for completing an event reconstruction by detecting all the particles produced in high energy heavy-ion collisions within a large acceptance angle to measure particle spectrum, yield, ratio and collective flow of pions, protons, neutrons, and intermediate fragments at the same time. The experimental setup consists of a superconducting spectrometer, a dipole spectrometer, and a forward neutron wall. A Time Projection Chamber (TPC) will be placed inside of superconducting solenoid magnet of 0.6 T for charged particle tracking. The dipole spectrometer will be located forward of the superconducting spectrometer and it will be composed of a combination of quadrupole, dipole magnets, focal plane detector, tracking stations, and Time-of-Flight (ToF) detector at the end. The neutron wall will be made of 10 layers of plastic scintillators for neutron tracking. In this presentation, the detail physics and design of LAMPS at RAON will be discussed.
