RIKEN Heavy Ion LINAC (RILAC)

 

RIKEN Heavy Ion LINAC (RILAC) is used as the starting point for producing the heavy ion beam used in many experiments. The heavy ions are linearly accelerated using a high-frequency electric field.

In July 2004, Dr. Morita and colleagues were the first to discover the new 113th element using this accelerator.
