The first IFIN-HH | ILL collaboration workshop was dedicated to the structure of nuclei produced in slow-neutron induced reactions during the first FIPPS experimental campaigns. It took place over three days early April 2019, in Măgurele.
FIPPS (Fission-Product-Prompt-gamma-ray-Spectrometer) is a new instrument of the ILL consisting of a pencil-like intense thermal neutron beam and an array of HPGe clovers, with the possibility to host ancillary detectors. The instrument has been operational since end 2016 with stable (rare) targets. The granularity and efficiency of the array has been recently improved by the addition of 8 IFIN-HH HPGe clovers. Such a setup has been used, in particular, for the study of the structure of neutron rich fission fragments.
With over 20 presentations, the programme scope covered the status of data analysis, first physics results as well as future perspectives at the FIPPS-IFIN-HH setup (using stable (rare) as well as radioactive targets).
Felix Kandzia, one of the 5 post-docs recruited as part of the FILL2030 project, gave a much appreciated talk en titled “First active target fission campaign at FIPPS” and Steph Monfront concluded the event with a presentation of the opportunities offered by FILL2030 to the Romanian scientific community.
