ISOLDE Nuclear Astrophysics School 9-11 May 2017

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.

HIE-ISOLDE 3rd cryomodule transported to ISOLDE hall

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.

HIE-ISOLDE Experiments workshop 1st February 2016

This workshop aims to discuss and identify the best physics cases for next year's beam time. Short presentations will be given where the physics cases of experiments are revisited, and the running conditions and limitations are presented. The building of the HIE-ISOLDE project continues and good results pave the way for our future.
