Abstract

A new beam line is now fully operational at Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro (LNL) TANDEM/ALPI accelerator for the in-flight production of light low-energy Radioactive Nuclear Beams (RNBs). The RNBs are produced by inverse kinematics reactions induced by heavy ions, such as O-17 and Li-6, on H-1 and He-3 gas targets. The beam line has a large solid angle acceptance (Delta Omega = 10 msr) and a high rejection capability of spurious beams due to the combined action of magnetic rigidity and velocity filtering. A very pure (100%) and high intensity (3.6 x 10(6) pps) F-17(9+) secondary beam at E-lab = 86 +/- 1 MeV has been produced and used for experiments. A B-8(5+) beam at E-lab = 33 MeV, with a production rate of similar to 2 x 10(3) pps, is presently under commissioning.
