The first IPNL accelerator at the university library

The first IPNL accelerator at the university library

The IPNL was built around a Cockcroft and Walton accelerator bought by Jean Thibaud. This accelerator ended his life in the dome where only part of the original machine was used. It is the subject of a restoration project that is exposed to the university library between May 31 and July 2.

First Results of the EDELWEISS III experiment

First Results of the EDELWEISS III experiment

The EDELWEISS experiment aims to detect WIMPs, a candidate for dark matter particles. It is located in the Modane Underground Laboratory. The experiment operates bolometers cooled to tens of Millikelvin where a WIMP might collide with a germanium nucleus and produce its recoil. This recoil is then measured by the resulting temperature rise (few microkelvin) and ionisation production (Germanium is a semiconductor material). This double measurment allow to identify nuclear recoils and thus eliminating much of the background due to gamma rays from natural radioactivity.

New telescopes installation on the Soufrière volcano

The DIAPHANE project (IPNL / Geosciences Rennes / IPGP / ANR diaphane 2014-2018) had an important phase of installation on the Soufriere Guadeloupe in April-May 2015, which came after several months of preparation, construction, tests and calibrations of the muon detectors sent to the volcano. This has been performed with the support and expertise of the technical services of the IPNL.

hyper-exotic nuclei

hyper-exotic nuclei

By adding a dimension related to the strangeness to the map of exotic nuclei, a collaboration of theorists from IPNO, IPNL, LPC Caen and IFIN Bucharest generated the first three-dimensional maps of hyper-exotic nuclei. They counted about 500 000 new nuclei and analyzed the stability of certain properties known by adding strangeness in the nuclei. The results are published in the journal Physical Review C.
