Abstract

A new radioactive beam facility of the ISOL type, ISAC, is being built at TRIUMF to provide intense beams of both low-energy (<60 keV) and accelerated radioactive ions up to 1.5 MeV/u. The facility is scheduled for completion by the fall of 2000. With further energy upgrades anticipated in the next five-year plan, Canada is positioning itself as a leader in the next generation of radioactive beam facilities. This report presents a general description of the facility, an overview of the initial experimental program, the present status of the project and the future plans for ISAC-II.
