Next generation nuclear structure studies


Project Description

The HIE-ISOLDE facility at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland is a superconducting (SC) heavy-ion linac for exploring exotic nuclear structures and stellar nucleosynthesis by using nuclear reactions. This PhD project will study and optimise the beam dynamics of the Isolde Superconducting Recoil Separator (ISRS). This is an innovative SC spectrograph for characterising beam-like fragments produced in nuclear reactions. The ISRS will be coupled to the nuclear reaction chamber SED and the spectrometers MINIBALL and ISS. As part of the project, you will carry out design studies into different configuration which shall lead to the construction and commissioning of this new generation of SC spectrometers at CERN. This development will mark a major technological break-through in this field.
