The GARIS was installed at an experimental hall of the RILAC
facility. The separator was designed for collecting nuclear
reaction products produced in fusion-evaporation reaction with
high efficiency, separating them from intense primary beam,
with high background reduction rate.
One of the most interesting applications of the separator is discovery of “superheavy element”. The production cross section of these reactions tend to decrease in logarithmic manner with the increase of atomic numbers of the nucleus. A smallness of the production cross section is limiting farther research of nuclei with grater atomic numbers. In order to overcome the difficulty, one needs more intense primary beam from an accelerator and recoil separator with high efficiency and with high background reduction, the GARIS was installed at the RILAC facility.
