Nuclear physics

Numerical simulations

This activity is in very close collaboration with experimental groups of the Laboratory or of GANIL of which the holder (D.D.) was or still is a member.  

In the context of hadrontherapy, it is necessary to develop models of carbon fragmentation on targets of medical interest. A model has been developed and compared with the results obtained by the “Medical & Industrial Applications” group at GANIL. It will be implemented in GEANT4. The experiments of the “Low energy precision measurements” group use Paul traps coupled to RFQ-Coolers. A microscopic simulation of the ion-atom interaction is necessary and has been developed to predict the behavior of the ion cloud in the trap. The “Nuclear Structure” group in LPC is involved in the construction and installation of the NEBULA@RIKEN device. A simulation program for the detector is being finalized to make the best use of the digitized signals from the FASTER acquisition. In the framework of the VAMOS@GANIL collaboration studying nuclear fission, a phenomenological model has been developed to investigate a possible dependence of the level density on the isospin degree of freedom in collaboration with D. Ramos and A. Lemasson from GANIL. 

Finally, a nuclear reaction model (ELIE) is now operational and a meta-analysis of the INDRA data set is being finalized.
