Laser Ionization and Spectroscopy of Actinide elements

Project description

Lasting impact expected from the study of short-lived elements

Uranium and plutonium are perhaps the best-known actinides, a large group of radioactive elements most of which are highly unstable and as of yet only produced synthetically via nuclear reactions in particle accelerators. Actinides also include obscure elements like Curium, Einsteinium, Fermium and Mendelevium named after famous scientists. Although actinides have been crucial to our basic understanding of nuclear chemistry and applications including nuclear power, they are still largely a mystery due to their ephemeral natures. The EU-funded LISA project brings together 12 partners focused on preparing 15 PhD students to shine the light on actinides. The consortium plans to develop novel laser technologies enabling the creation and study of actinides for the development of new applications.
