TASCC - THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. | Report individual record

The Tandem Superconducting Cyclotron (TASCC) Project at Chalk River is nearing completion of Phase I construction. The accelerator facilities are described as are the major pieces of experimental equipment that will be available: the Q3D magnetic spectrometer, the on-line isotope separator, the 8 pi gamma -ray spectrometer, and the multiparticle detector systems. Research at TASCC will focus on the study of nuclei at extremes - extremes of density, temperature, high spin, high excitation and exotic nucleonic composition. The principal experimental programs are outlined under three headings: heavy ion reaction phenomena at transitional energies; nuclear states at high excitation and angular momentum; and exotic nuclei.
