FRIB will be a new world-leading scientific accelerator facility for nuclear science. FRIB is based on a 400 kW, 200 MeV/u heavy ion linear accelerator and uses projectile fragmentation or fission and in-flight separation to provide a wide variety of fast beams of rare isotopes, opening exciting research perspectives in low-energy nuclear science. One unique feature of FRIB is the availability of very low-energy (stopped) beams which are obtained using gas stopping and in the future solid stopper techniques and which can be reaccelerated.
The primary function of this position is to perform work to further develop and improve beam stopping techniques with regard to achieving high beam rate capability, improved beam purity, and easier operation. Some projects may also require adding new capabilities to existing modeling and simulation software used at FRIB. The candidate will be expected to work in a team environment and fully document study in journal articles, conference papers, and technical reports.
