International Workshop on
"Nuclear Physics with RIBF"
March, 13-17, 2006 RIKEN,Saitama,JAPAN
The RI Beam Factory (RIBF) is a next generation facility to expand further scientific opportunities with intense rare-isotope beams (RIBs), which are achieved by combining a super-conducting ring cyclotron (SRC) and a large acceptance fragment separator (BigRIPS).
Phase-I construction program of the SRC and BigRIPS will be completed in 2006, and will start with delivering fast RIBs in 2007. In this year, a multi-function BT line called Zero-degree forward spectrometer will also be constructed.
On this occasion of the forthcoming RIBs from the BigRIPS and further promotion of Phase-II program, this workshop is aiming to discuss, by exchanging ideas and interests, various research programs and to point out problems to be solved. This workshop will also give a trigger to form collaborations and networks for both coming experimental and theoretical works.
We cordially invite everyone, both theorists and experimentalists, to join this workshop.

RIKEN RI Beam Factory
The RI Beam Factory (RIBF) is a next generation facility to expand further scientific opportunities with intense rare-isotope beams (RIBs), which are achieved by combining a super-conducting ring cyclotron (SRC) and a large acceptance fragment separator (BigRIPS). Phase-I construction program of the SRC and BigRIPS will be completed in 2006, and will start with delivering fast RIBs in 2007. In this year, a multi-function BT line called Zero-degree forward spectrometer will also be constructed. PAC for proposals with RIBs from the BigRIPS will be held in autumn of 2006.
One can obtain the technical information on the BigRIPS as a pdf file. Primary beams available at the comissioning stage of RIBF willbe 48Ca (>100pnA), Kr (￣100pnA), Xe (under estimation) and 238U (￣10pnA).
To exploit the potential of this forefront facility, RIKEN is proceeding to Phase-II program where the construction of major experimental installations is planned. This includes a large acceptance superconducting spectrometer (SAMURAI), a facility utilizing very slow RIBs provided via an rf ion guide system (SLOWRI), a high-resolution RIB spectrometer (SHARAQ), a rare RI precision mass measurement apparatus consisting of an isochronous storage ring (Rare RI ring), and an electron-scattering experimental apparatus consisting of a self-confining RI-ion target (SCRIT). Phase-II program will also expand opportunities by upgrading the present facility. The RIPS will be strengthened by primary beams accelerated at the intermediate stage ring cyclotron (IRC), and be used as a facility for low-to-medium energy polarized RIBs as well as purified proton-rich RIBs. The construction of a new additional injector linac to the RRC is also planned, which brings out the independent operation of GARIS to make it possible to promote further super-heavy element science. In-flight low energy RIBs are available at the CRIB utilizing the AVF cyclotron, which will not be used as an injector for the RIBF.
Scientific Program is now available as a PDF file. (Updated !!: March 10)
Topics to be discussed at the workshop include:
1) Introduction of the present and new RIBF facility as well as scientific opportunities
2) Experimental programs and instrumentations for Phase-I and -II,
3) Future directions of theories to construct new frameworks.
On the first two days, plenary sessions will be allocated to the introduction of the facility of RIBF and the review of present research activities. The next two days will be dedicated to discussions in parallel sessions. The parallel sessions will be arranged in terms of the subjects under discussion (see below). All participants will have the opportunities to present their own interests and ideas. Each parallel session will be moderated by one convener. On the last day, all conveners will be requested to summarize the contents of parallel sessions and the participants will discuss future directions together.
Subjects to be discussed at the workshop include
1) Shell, deformation and effective interaction in isospin asymmetry system
2) Pair and cluster correlation in weakly bound system
3) Exotic modes of excitation originated from isospin asymmetry and weak binding
4) Moments, radii and masses as probes of exotic structure
5) Production of SHEs and their properties
6) Interplay between nuclear reactions and nuclear structure
7) Exotic dynamics of nuclear reactions originated from isospin asymmetry
8) Equation of state and new aspects for asymmetric nuclear matter
9) Nuclear reactions and nuclear properties for explosive nucleosynthesis
10) New theoretical methods for expanded nuclear chart
11) Unique programs utilizing primary beams
12) New techniques/methods for study of nuclear structure and reactions
13) New instrumentations for the next generation
The workshop will be held at Wako-city Hall, “Sunazalea”, for plenary sessions in March 13-14, and from March 15 to 17, March the workshop site will be moved to RIKEN; Nishina Hall, Suzuki-Umetaro Hall,and RIBF conference room.
