Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility

Devoted to low-energy nuclear structure and astrophysics research. Radioactive ions are produced by the K=105 Oak Ridge Isochronous Cyclotron (ORIC). The radioactive elements are injected into the 25 MV Tandem Accelerator producing beams of 0.1-10 MeV per nucleon for light nuclei and up to 5 MeV per nucleon for mass 80. These beams are ideal for research in nuclear astrophysics and nuclear structure.

DOE's Office of High Energy and Nuclear Physics

Administers a $1 billion/year research program in the U.S. Most high energy and nuclear physics research is conducted using accelerators which produce beams of subatomic particles (e.g., protons and electrons) or nuclei moving essentially at the speed of light. When a beam is collided with another beam or a fixed target, new particles are created from the kinetic energy in the beam.
