The racetrack microtron MAMI B [1] now under construction at Mainz will provide a high-intensity electron beam with energies up to 840 MeV. The 100% duty factor, high-quality beam is considered to be ideal for the investigation of the nucleus in the medium energy region. Coincidence experiments with the detection of the scattered electron and the hadronic reaction products will become possible in a wide kinematical range yielding the information about the response of the nucleus to the transferred energy and momentum. By the method of bremsstrahlung tagging intense secondary photon beams with high monochromacity and well known fluxes will be available for photonuclear research work. Further developments will provide longitudinally polarized electron beams which will make extremely small interaction amplitudes accessible to. the measurement via the interference terms.
