WP9 JRA1 PASPAG

October 20, 2018 Tengblad

PASPAG do R&D for the simultaneous detection of gamma rays and particles using scintillators. PASPAG will develop detection systems for applications within medical & homeland security. Furhter, this activity might lead to industrial or medical applications that can take advantage of advanced nuclear imaging technologies.

Objetives

PASPAG aims for Simultaneous detection of Gamma and Particle Radiation by the use of new scintillator materials combined with the phoswich technique. Digital electronic and DAQ with improved throughput and more effective storage will be developed. R&D on new Secondary Electron Emission (SEE) materials will be performed in order to develop thin detectors for Low-Energy beam. The JRA aims for cost effective, reduced systems in size and complexity that can be used at several facilities.

ENSAR2: a European project for Nuclear Physics

October 20, 2018 Tengblad

ENSAR2 is the integrating activity for European nuclear scientists who are performing research in three of the major subfields defined by NuPECC: Nuclear Structure and Dynamics, Nuclear Astrophysics and Nuclear Physics Tools and Applications.

It proposes an optimised ensemble of Networking (NAs), Joint Research (JRAs) and Transnational Access Activities (TAs), which will ensure qualitative and quantitative improvement of the access provided by the current ten infrastructures (GANIL-SPIRAL2 (F), joint LNL-LNS (I), CERN-ISOLDE (CH), JYFL (FI), ALTO (F), GSI (D), KVI-CART (NL), NLC (PL), IFIN-HH/ELI-NP (RO) and the theoretical physics facility: ECT* (I)), which are at the core of this project.

Our community of nuclear scientists makes great effort to pursue excellent scientific programmes at these infrastructures and to apply state-of-the-art developments to other fields and to benefit humanity (e.g., archaeology, medical imaging). These activities ensure a high-level socio-economic impact. To enhance the access to these facilities, the community has defined a number of JRAs dealing with novel and innovative technologies to improve the operation of the facilities. The NAs of ENSAR2 have been set-up with specific actions to strengthen the communities coherence around certain research topics and to ensure a broad dissemination of results and stimulate multidisciplinary, application-oriented research and innovation at the Research Infrastructures.
