On the 29th of April, 2017 the first experiment at HIL with metallic beam was successfully completed.
The experiment HIL066 “Transfer cross sections at near-barrier energies for the 24Mg + 90,92Zr systems” was proposed by Agnieszka Trzcińska form HIL and Władysław Trzaska from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.
The measurements were performed at ICARE scattering chamber. Identification of back scattered ions and reaction products were done employing the Time of Flight technique and energy loss vs energy (ΔE vs E) measurement of registered ions.
The experiment was conducted in a collaboration with physicists from 6 countries: Finland, Italy, Germany, Romania, Russia and China with the Transnational Access (TNA) support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n°654002 .
