The first experiment after the COVID-19 lockdown.

On July 10 and 13, 2020, samples were irradiated with an internal alpha beam. It was the first part of the HIL091 project “Cross-section measurements of 117mSn and its contaminants produced by alpha particles on natural Cadmium and natural Indium targets”, proposed by an Italian-Polish team led by Gaja Pupillo (LNL) and Lucia De Dominicis (HIL). The experiment is a part of the WP15-TecHIBA task within the ENSAR2 European programme and is the first use of the U-200P cyclotron beam for scientific research after the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.

Lucia De Dominicis and Agnieszka Trzcińska perform a spectrometric analysis of irradiated samples.

Prof. Adam Strzałkowski passed away

With a great regret, we pay our last respect to prof. Adam Strzałkowski.

We remember him as an outstanding nuclear physicist, professor at the Jagiellonian University, a scientist of great authority and teacher of many generations of Krakow nuclear physicists.

A few years ago, the professor spoke beautifully about himself:
