The DESIR physics case has been outlined in detail in the Letter of Intent submitted to the SPIRAL2 Scientific Advisory Committee in 2006. A few selected cases from this Letter of Intent are presented here which are meant to give a flavor of the physics opportunities with DESIR.
In addition, a short and long version of the Letter of Intent can be downloaded by consulting this page : http://www.cenbg.in2p3.fr/desir/-DESIR-Letter-of-intent-
Low-energy beams from the two SPIRAL2 productions caves, from S3 and from SPIRAL1 will be cooled and bunch in an RFQ to provide good optical and timing properties. They will be delivered to the different experimental setups implemented in the DESIR Hall via a high-resolution mass seperator. They consists in trapping devices devoted to mass measurements (MLLTrap), to trap assisted spectroscopy and to fundamental research studies (KVI setup), as well as in laser a spectroscopy setup (LUMIERE) and in a decay-spectroscopy setup (BESTIOL).
A technical description of the whole DESIR facility is given in the technical design report.
