The ISOLDE Newsletter for 2015 is now available here.
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.
The TSR@ISOLDE workshop will be held at CERN 27-28 April 2015. For registration and abstract submission see the workshop website.
In 2015 there will be three INTC meetings: Wednesday 11th-Thursday 12th February , Wednesday 1-Thursday 2nd July and Wednesday 1-Thursday 12th November. Submission deadlines can be found on the INTC website. Please use document templates available at the INTC website and submit the documents online.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Large Scale Shell Model is the tool of choice for spectroscopic studies in the modern nuclear structure calculations. It can describe simultaneously the spectroscopic properties and decay of odd and even nuclei in a given mass region. Being fully microscopic, it is as well perfectly suited for studies of the fundamental properties of the nuclear force. The shell model code ANTOINE, created by E. Caurier in Strasbourg, is one of most popular shell model codes in the world.
