An extended work is in progress concerning the target development for the SPES (Selective Production of Exotic Species) project. The SPES will be an ISOL based facility (Isotope Separation On Line) in which a proton beam of 40 MeV and 0.2 mA impinges directly on a uranium carbide target. After the mass separation and re-acceleration on the experimental sites, the RIBs will have an intensity of the order of 109 pps (for 132Sn) and an energy up to 13 MeV/u. The new idea that characterize this project is the design of its target: we propose a target configuration capable to keep high the number of fissions, low the power deposition and fast the release of the produced isotopes.
