Laboratory of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions
The Laboratory has been created within the Institute’s initiative program “Research of nuclear reactions for astrophysical and thermonuclear applications”.
Research interests – experimental measurements of nuclear cross-sections in reactions with light nuclei and light charged particles in a wide angular range, including those at extremely small and large angles in the energy range of 0.2 – 60 MeV; analysis of experimental data in the frameworks of cluster and collective models looking for reaction rates and astrophysical S-factor of nuclear reactions.
Main scientific achievements
- The series of research on reaction of radiating capture 9Ве(р, g)10В studying in a wide interval of energy of flying protons was executed.
- Mechanisms of nuclear reactions, accompanying the interactions of alpha-particles with boron isotopes at the energies of 40 and 50 MeV were investigated.
- The registration system for the products of nuclear reactions at low and ultralow energies of the accelerated particles was created (consisting of HP(Ge) gamma spectrometer, large-area large resolution semi-conductor detectors, etc.).
- The new reactionary cell on the cyclotron for measurement of differential sections of nuclear reactions at extremely small and big angles was created.
