Contribution to the ISOLDE-experiment at CERN

Coordinating university: Lund University, www.lu.se 

Project description 
The project concerns the Swedish membership in the ISOLDE collaboration at CERN. ISOLDE, CERN:s radioactive beam facility, provides beams for experiments in nuclear physics and atomic physics, including applications in nuclear astrophysics and fundamental physics, as well as in solid-state physics, biophysics and medical physics. The experimental activities at ISOLDE are governed by a memorandum of understanding between CERN and the members of the ISOLDE collaboration represented by the respective funding agencies. The collaboration currently includes 15 countries and CERN. Sweden has been member of ISOLDE since it inception in 1967. ISOLDE is a part of CERNs general organization. It includes a user group of ca 500 university physicists with research activities at the facility. The contribution delivers support for the optimization of the daily operation of the accelerator and separator infrastructure of the facility. The Collaboration also provides support to assist approved experiments.
