LIfetime measurements with Solid Active targets

Project description

Probing collective excitations in atomic nuclei

The presence of single-particle and collective states in atomic nuclei gives rise to various exotic phenomena. The EU-funded LISA project plans to investigate how collective behaviour emerges from single proton and neutron excitations, a major open question in nuclear physics. Researchers will use a novel method to conduct lifetime measurements of excited states in atomic nuclei which, combined with state-of-the-art gamma-ray tracking detectors, could help overcome current challenges that prevent lifetime measurements with low-intensity beams of unstable nuclei. Furthermore, researchers will exploit the unique capabilities of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research, a European facility that is expected to generate particle beams of unparalleled intensity and quality.
