  • to highlight technical progress made on various aspects of the project;
  • to identify unique and world-leading scientific opportunities for ARIEL and ISAC in all phases of the ARIEL project, particularly for the materials science and nuclear physics program;
  • and to describe the construction and funding status as well as possibly refining the planned implementation scenario.
  • Special attention will be paid to early implementation of a 9Be production target with 8Li production via electron-driven photo disintegration of 9Be.

Further information on ARIEL is online, including schematics.
