Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos

Training School: "An experiment of Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics using direct methods"

  • When 10 Apr, 2018 to 21 Apr, 2018 (Europe/Paris / UTC200)
  • Where IFIN-HH (ELI-NP), Bucharest, Romania
  • Contact Name
  • Add event to calendar iCal

IFIN-HH of Bucharest-Magurele, Romania will host a training school in nuclear astrophysics of a 11 days duration, consisting in classes and hands-on activities:

  1. In a target laboratory
  2. Manning an experiment at the 3 MV tandetron (7 days around the clock)
  3. Prompt gamma-ray measurements at 9 MV tandem and the ROSPHERE array
  4. De-activation measurements in an underground laboratory we have in a salt mine.

Local and invited trainers will lead the participants during the school that will cover most types of activities a physicist engaged in nuclear physics for astrophysics, in particular those engaged in direct measurements for nuclear astrophysics, will have to go through.

The intended level is PhD student and early post-doc.

The trainees:

  • will attend introductory classes
  • will man the experiment round the clock,
  • will make the experimental arrangement,
  • will handle the DAQ system,
  • will collect and
  • will analyze on/offline data (prompt and de-activation gamma-rays).
