Nuclear Physics Data

Our research team is part of the Advanced Nuclear Technologies (ANT) Research Group at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), BARCELONATECH

This group is focused in nuclear experimental studies with reactions where neutrons have an important role. Our objectives are to provide new relevant nuclear data for new designs of nuclear technologies, nuclear waste and spent fuel treatment, and astrophysics (nucleosynthesis and nuclei abundances).

The activities developed are supported by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitivity under grant FPA2011-28770-C03-03.

Research areas:

Beta dELayEd Neutron (BELEN) detector

The aim is to determine nuclei properties experimentally, focusing on beta delayed neutron emission probabilities of exotic nuclei in the neutron rich region.

n_ToF collaboration

The main goal of this project is the study of neutron-induced reactions related with many research areas as basic nuclear physics, nuclear astrophysics, and nuclear technology.

The n_ToF (neutron Time-of-Flight) facility is located at CERN and consist on a pulsed neutron source that generates a wide energy range of neutrons (up to 20 GeV) at high intensities.
