An ISOL –post accelerator type Rare Ion Beam (RIB) Facility is being developed at our centre. The RIBs will be produced by using light ion induced fusion evaporation and by using photo-fission reaction, using a 50 MeV 2mA SC electron linac that is being developed in collaboration with TRIUMF, Canada. The primary reaction products will be ionized using two-ion source charge breeder. The possibility of feeding the primary reaction products directly to an ECR ion source using multi-stage skimmer and gas jet transport technique is being explored at present. An extended rod type heavy ion RFQ, one buncher and three IH cavities have been successfully accelerated stable beams up to about 415 keV/u. Three more IH cavities will increase the energy to about 1.3 MeV/u and SC QWRs will augment the energy thereafter. In the next stage of development, an Advanced National Facility for Unstable & Rare Isotope Beams (ANURIB) has been envisaged. This green field project will deliver stable & RIBs from 1.5 keV/u to 100 MeV/u. This will have both ISOL type and PFS type facility. Neutron & positron beams based facilities will also be built around the e- linac.
