Charting Terra Incognita is a project grant that brings together the IPN Orsay, CSNSM Orsay and Irfu-SPHN laboratories around the common development of knowhow, equipment and techniques for mass spectrometry and nuclear spectroscopy at the low-energy branch of the new S3 spectrometer at Ganil, where likewise the Reglis set-up for intrajet laser spectroscopy is entering its final phase of construction. At the same time its concerted action initiates and sets the pace for the corresponding precursor physics programme at the Alto on-line isotope-separation facility, based on the photofission of uranium. We also collect a review of the Alto laser ion source, which is an essential instrument at any low-energy facility for the production of purified isotopic beams.
