ISOLDE: A milestone toward a higher-energy nuclear physics facility

ISOLDE: A milestone toward a higher-energy nuclear physics facility | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
via WordLink - CERN's nuclear physics facility ISOLDE will soon be producing radioactive ion beams at higher energies. The purpose of the HIE-ISOLDE (High Intensity and Energy ISOLDE) project, now in the advanced stages of construction at CERN, is to increase the energy and intensity of the ISOLDE beams. The transportation and installation of the first acceleration module on Saturday, 2 May marked an important milestone in the project. Made up of five superconducting accelerating cavities, this
