An in-flight separator, BigRIPS, at RIBF in RIKEN provides each experiment with specific nuclides separated from many nuclides produced by projectile fragmentation or in-flight fission. In this process, nuclides other than separated ones are discarded on the slits in BigRIPS, although they include many nuclides interested from the view point of nuclear structure. In order to extract these nuclides for parasitic experiments, we are developing a method using laser ion-source (PALIS). A test experiment with Se beam from RIBF has been performed by using a gas cell set in BigRIPS. Unstable nuclides around Se were stopped in the gas cell in accordance with a calculation using LISE code. The stopping efficiency has been estimated to be about 30%. As a next step, we will establish the technique for extracting reaction products from the gas cell.

In order to produce low-energy RI beams at RIKEN RIBF, a laser ion source, PALIS, is under construction. This ion source is based on resonance ionization of RI atoms captured in Ar gas. Because the ion source is located 70m away from lasers, we have developed an optical system for laser beam transport. This system can be controlled remotely when the ion source is not accessible because of high radiation level. The position of laser beam after transport is reasonably stable, and the transport efficiency is about 50%.

For the radioactivity evaluation regarding to the accident of TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, time-consuming and skills-required sample pretreatments for Sr analysis (radiometric or ICP-MS analyses) is serious issue. We are developing a ultra-sensitive and rapid analytical technique for Sr by combining resonance ionization spectroscopy, in which only the atoms of specific isotope can be ionized using the slight difference in level energy, and ion trap technique, in which only the ions of specific isotope can be trapped for a long duration to observe them with high sensitivity. In this study, we applied a continuous-wave isolated-core excitation technique (cw-ICE) for the first time to search for highly efficient and isotope-selective ionization schemes, especially for the Rydberg series converging to the 5 ionic levels, of which information is quite scarce. As a result, we have revealed a detailed level-structure of autoionizing 5(nl) series of Sr atoms.
