The International Conference on Electromagnetic Isotope Separators and Related Topics (EMIS) will be held at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland, from 16th to 21st September 2018. The EMIS 2018 conference will be hosted by ISOLDE, CERN. EMIS is the flagship conference series on techniques in the field of low-energy nuclear science.
The 17th International Conference on Ion Sources, organized by CERN, will take place from Sunday October 15 to Friday October 20, 2017 at CERN and Geneva’s “Centre International de Conference” (CICG). Information and registration via http://icis2017.web.cern.ch/ .
When the pre-registration (PRT) has been completed for a new User, it is now possible to get a CERN computer account and, hence, complete the on-line safety courses required for access to ISOLDE before coming to CERN. Once the pre-registration is accepted by the CERN Users office an email is sent to the User informing them how to apply for the account.
Nuclear astrophysics is the study of nuclear-level processes that occur naturally in space. Notably, this includes understanding the chain of fusion events, or nucleosynthesis, that occurs in stars, and how can we recreate them in our facilities and compare them with the observables from space. The ISOLDE Nuclear Astrophysics School will consist of morning lectures and tutorial sessions in the afternoon.
The 3rd HIE-ISOLDE cryomodule is now in its final position in the ISOLDE hall. It was transported on Tuesday the 24th of January as shown in the photo below, courtesy of E. Siesling. It was tough for the transport people due to the freezing conditions. The cryomodule is already on its jacks, the shielding tunnel roof is closed and the alignment done.
