Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 6)


The MIT-Bates Linear Accelerator Center is presently installing a pulse stretcher ring. This upgrade will provide continuous, high current, polarized beams of electrons up to 1 GeV energy. A collaboration has formed to develop and install the Bates Large Acceptance Spectrometer Toroid (BLAST) at the ring internal target area. Concurrently, members of the collaboration are developing polarized and unpolarized internal targets. I will describe the facility under development, outline the broad scope of the approved program for studying few body nuclei, and focus on simulations of a few planned triple coincidence reactions.
