Abstract

The Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP) cyclotron cascade system has been operated to provide high quality beams for various experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics and applications. Three ion sources are in operation; atomic beam type polarized ion source, 10 GHz ECR source NEOMAFIOS and 18-GHz Superconducting ECR source. A 2.45 GHz proton source is under development to provide high brightness proton beams. There have been increasing demands for heavy ion beams. A supplementary budget was approved for the restoration of aging facility. Several equipments are under fabrication and the installation will be performed during January and March in 2014.
