Representation of a tetraneutron. The unambiguous observation of this system composed of 4 neutrons, sheds new light on the mechanisms of cohesion in the atomic nucleus or neutron stars. Credit: CNRS/IN2P3 A resonance structure compatible with a quasi-bound tetraneutron has been observed by scientists of the SAMURAI collaboration in RIKEN, Japan, in which a team […]
The installation of the MORA experiment at the Jyväskylä laboratory in Finland was completed at the end of January 2002, by the technical team of the LPC Caen. The first experiment at the end of February will start the research program for the origin of matter and antimatter asymmetry, which will be pursued at DESIR.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, IWM-EC 2020 which was originally planned on November 2020 has been postponed to November 2021 and becomes IWM-EC 2021. This new edition of the International Workshop on Multi-facets of EoS and Clustering IWM-EC will take place in Caen, France in November 23-26th, 2021. The workshop is supported by the […]
During a week-long at-sea campaign from April 8 to 14, 2021, the underwater infrastructure of the Italian KM3NeT site off Sicily was successfully implemented. In addition, five new KM3NeT / ARCA sensor units were connected and have since been operational. Located in the Mediterranean Sea at a depth of 3500 m, about 80 km off […]

The international nu-Ball collaboration, working on the ALTO installation of the IJCLab laboratory, has brought new results shedding light on the way in which the fission fragments of an atomic nucleus spontaneously acquire a rotational motion on themselves: the angular momentum. This study, in which 6 laboratories of IN2P3 are involved, is published today in […]
Thesis defense : Edgar Barlerin The thesis work presented concerns the development of a mass spectrometer with a large acceptance, FRACAS, in the framework of the study of the fragmentation of 12C ions on targets of interest for hadrontherapy. The development of this device is motivated by the need to measure the double differential effective […]
