The US Department of Energy (DoE) and the National Institute for Nuclear Physics - Italy (INFN) announce the 2019 Summer Exchange Program edition, addressed to US and Italian students in science and engineering.
Students are given a chance to work on projects that will deepen their experience in the fields of science and technology which are relevant for their academic training.
The Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS ) is one of the four INFN National laboratories. It is the largest underground laboratory in the world for experiments in particle physics and nuclear astrophysics.
In particular, the following LNGS group has expressed an interest in the program: LUNA experiment.
For this edition, in fact, TWO positions are available for:
Title: Detector and target characterization measurements in the framework of LUNA experiment
Description: In view of the installation of the new accelerator 3.5 MV LNGS facility at Gran Sasso Laboraroty, a complete study of the 14N(p,g)16O cross section study at high energy is foreseen. The grant period will be devoted to a detailed characterization measurements of the 14N solid target in terms of stability, purity and reproducibility through gamma detection using a HpGe detector. Basic software analysis will be developed.Tutors: Alba Formicola (JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING)
