SPIRAL2 is the new project under construction at GANIL to produce radioactive ion beams and in particular neutron rich ion beams. For the past 10 yr SPIRAL1 at GANIL has been delivering accelerated radioactive ion beams of gases. Both facilities now need to extend the range of radioactive ion beams produced to condensable elements. For that purpose, a resonant ionization laser ion source, funded by the French Research National Agency, is under development at GANIL, in collaboration with IPN Orsay, University of Mainz (Germany) and TRIUMF, Vancouver (Canada). A description of this project called GISELE (GANIL Ion Source using Electron Laser Excitation) is presented.

    The charge breeding process, consisting of a low charge state ion beam (1+) plasma capture followed by a multi-ionization process, has been developed for more than ten years in LPSC Grenoble (previously ISN) using ECRIS. The challenge has been to optimize the 1+ capture and then the reextraction...
