50th Anniversary ISOLDE Workshop - recordings and photos

The ISOLDE Workshop and Users Meeting 50th Anniversary Edition was held at CERN from 15th to 17th December 2014. At the special Golden Jubillee session held on Wednesday 17th December all former ISOLDE Group Leaders gave presentations about their time at ISOLDE. Recordings of these presentations can be found here. Photos taken during the session are available at here.

ISOLDE Workshop "50th Anniversary Edition" 15-17 Dec. 2014

The ISOLDE Workshop and Users meeting "50th Anniversary Edition" will be take place at CERN from 15th to 17th December 2014.

This annual event aims to bring together the present and prospective ISOLDE user community to review the status of the ISOLDE experimental programme and to discuss future plans and ideas. This year the event will include a special session to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the approval of ISOLDE.

ISOLDE Nuclear Reaction and Nuclear Structure Course 22-25 April 2014

In these lectures the student will be given an overview of reaction processes such as elastic, inelastic and fusion at the energies relevant for the post-accelerated ISOLDE beams as well as direct reactions. The different information that can be obtained by studying such processes concerning both nuclear structure and nuclear reaction will be highlighted. The minimum theoretical background to understand and calculate some of these processes will be given.

TSR@ISOLDE Workshop 14th February 2014

The installation of TSR, as an experiment to be included in the HIE-ISOLDE programme, was recently approved by CERN’s Research Board. Such a facility will provide a capability for experiments with stored secondary beams that is unique in the world. The possible physics programme has already been laid out in a recent review: M. Grieser et al., Eur. Phys. J. Special Topics 207, 1-117 (2012).

ISOLDE Nuclear Physics Summer lecture series 23-26 July 2013

A series of four nuclear physics lectures given by Prof. Richard Casten from Yale University. These lectures will provide a simple overview of the structure of atomic nuclei, including empirical signatures of structure, the dependence of structure on proton and neutron numbers, the complementarity of microscopic ( nucleon-based) and macroscopic (many-body and symmetry perspective) approaches.
