About the Project
The project combines the application of nuclear physics and atomic physics techniques, in particular based on application of lasers, e.g. the Resonance Ionisation Laser Ion Source (RILIS) and the ISOLDE on-line mass separator at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland) or at the KISS separator at Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (RIBF) at RIKEN(Tokyo, Japan).
At ISOLDE, charge radii, nuclear shapes and decay properties are being investigated, while at RIKEN, the emphasis is made on production of new isotopes, and measurements of their masses, half-lives and decay properties. Such information is indispensable for reliable prediction of the path of astrophysical r-process and its termination by fission.
The experiments will involve the use of different types of particle detectors (e.g. for alpha/beta/gamma spectroscopy), and the student will also learn relevant atomic physics techniques.
The successful candidate is expected to be able to travel to several experiments at CERN, and in case of RIKEN – possibly stay for extended periods in Tokyo.
