Abstract: With the wide-expansion of positron annihilation techniques into the various research fields there is a strong demand for high intensity positron sources, which are required for effective utilization of advanced beam systems. There are many efforts made, throughout the world, to design and set-up positron sources and beam systems with high intensity based on various principles. Such a positron source could be the basis for a series of experiments in fundamental and applied research and would also be a prototype source for industrial applications, which can concern not only in the field of matter characterization at the nanometer scale. Phenomena involving positrons are important in many fields of applied science, as medicine, biology, physics, energy, etc. The laboratories with low-energy positron beams are now being also used for investigation of outstanding studies of electron¿positron plasma phenomena, anti-hydrogen formation, modeling of astrophysical processes, and just recently also for newly discovered Bose-Einstein condensate. However, the limitations of such studies are often due to the relative lack of suitable positron sources. Therefore, the keyoutcomes of the HIPOS project include the basic design & development of such powerful experimental facility with a very high intensity positron beam based on reactor source. Proposed concept utilize a (n,gamma) and (gamma, pair) nuclear reactions within designed positron generator at High Flux Reactor (HFR) in Petten.
