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.
We are looking for contributions to the ISOLDE newsletter 2017. If you are interested, please send your text and figures using the template below to firstname.lastname@example.org before 28th February 2017. If any PhD theses have resulted from the work please mention this in the contribution
An ISOLDE laboratory portrait was published as a special volume of Hyperfine Interactions: HFI 129 (2000), in 2010 a brochure about ISOLDE was produced, and in 2011 a facility article was published in Nuclear Physics News.
The 2016 ISOLDE Workshop and Users meeting will be held at CERN from the 7th to 9th December. Registration for the event is now open via http://indico.cern.ch/event/561089 .
ISOLDE hosts the first two cryomodules for HIE-ISOLDE.
The ENSAR2 project, within the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, offers financial support for external users of the ISOLDE facility. For more information about this financial support and the application procedure please see http://isolde.web.cern.ch/financial-support .
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.
