The ENSAR2's Joint Research Activity for the R&D on
- 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.
PSeGe is a complementary activity of ENSAR2 devoted to develop new technologies and methods for 3-dimensional gamma-ray tracking with high-resolution germanium detectors. This activity is of particular importance because will or might lead to industrial or medical applications that can take advantage of advanced nuclear imaging technologies. PSeGe is focused on 3-dimensional position-sensitive Ge detectors dedicated to nuclear structure and applications in imaging.
