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

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.

Nanodrop thermalization

Researchers of the IPNL group Interaction Particule Matière, in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck, have observed the evaporation of water molecules by a nanodrop. Thanks to the DIAM accelerator built in the laboratory, and a new measurment method comming form particle physics, it was possible to accurately analyze the redistribution of energy in water droplets containing a small number of molecules. The results are published in the journal Angewandte Chemie on 1 December 2015. This article have been quoted in the "Research highlights" of Nature Nanotechnology vol 10, dec 2015.
