10-20 April 2018
Europe/Bucharest timezone


We intend to split into 3 groups of 5 students each, who will do independent study and work, in parallel, mostly on same or similar tasks
Classes will be together, at the beginning
 
April 10, 11, 12:   Classes and visits to IFIN-HH infrastructure: Accelerators, Dept. of Hadron Physics, IRASM (industrial size gamma-ray irradiator; ELI-NP)
  • mornings 9-12: 3 lectures x 1 hr
  • lunch 12:30 - 14
  • afternoons: 14 – 17
    • target laboratory (group 1, 2, 3)
    • or calibration of Ge dets (energy and efficiency) for prompt gamma-ray meas
    • or ROSPHERE gain match and calibrations
April 12 – Start setup of experiment at 3 MV TandetronTM
                 Detectors and DAQ
April 13-19 – Experiments at the tandem accelerator:
  • 1 day (24 hrs) – Irradiation of targets; prompt gammas and activation;
  • 1 day – drive to the ultra-low background lab in salt mine; activation measurements;
  • 1 day – data analysis and new irradiation + beta-gamma coincidences locally.
Repeat cycle with each group, then drop the energy and measure again
(groups will work on Sat – Sun, April 14-15!)
April 19, afternoon - Comparison of results of the three independent groups (I)
April 20 – Comparison of results of the three independent groups (II)
  • departures
All interspersed with other lectures.
