Overview of the Rare isotope Accelerator complex for ON-line experiments (RAON) project

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A new rare-isotope beam (RIB) accelerator complex, RAON, is being constructed in the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Korea. RAON is equipped with both isotope separation online (ISOL) and in-flight fragmentation (IF) systems and ultimately combines them to provide more neutron-rich (than any single mode operation) ion beams to the users. However, due to the delay in developing high-energy superconducting cavities and cryomodules, it was decided to proceed with the RAON construction project in two phases. In the first phase, the low-energy accelerator system, ISOL, and all experimental setups will be completed by the end of 2022. In the second phase, the high-energy superconducting system will be completed by 2029 or later. In this contribution, the status of the accelerators, RIB production systems, and experimental instruments for RAON is summarized.
