Abstract

Electron scattering is a superior method to investigate the internal structure, such as charge distribution, of atomic nuclei. Most of the radii of nuclei were determined unambiguously by that. However, radioactive isotopes (RI) which recently came up to a major research interest have not been accessible due to the difficulty in making fixed targets and taking measurements before they decay. We proposed a conceptually new target called SCRIT (Self-Confining Radioactive Isotope ion Target) as opposed to a collider method. The luminosity expected for SCRIT is inevitably low (typically on the order of 1.E+27/cm2/s) and a large acceptance detector system is required. We plan to perform a coincidence measurement using an electron arm and a recoil ion detector which needs to be developed. Current status of the ion trapping with a prototype SCRIT and the background measurement results in an electron storage ring will be discussed.
