Oral contribution Status of the upgrade


Dr Laurent Maunoury (CNRS GANIL)


In the framework of the SPIRAL1 upgrade under progress at the GANIL lab, the charge breeder based on a LPSC Phoenix ECRIS, first tested at ISOLDE [1] has been modified as to benefit of the last enhancements of this device from the 1+ / n+ community [2]. Prior to its installation in the midst of the low energy beam line of the SPIRAL1 facility, it has been tested at the 1+/n+ LPSC test bench to evaluate its performances and investigate the future operational modes. This contribution shall sum up the results obtained at LPSC concerning the 1+ to n+ conversion efficiencies for noble gazes as well as for alkali elements and the corresponding transformation times.
