Neutron detector development 
(Nuclear Physics – ESS – Max IV)

A three-part Memorandum of Understanding on a Joint DetectorLaboratory between the Division of Nuclear Physics at Lund University (NP), the MAX IV Laboratory (MAX-Lab) and the Detector Group at the European Spallation Source AB (ESS AB) will be signed during 2011.  An agreement has already been signed for co-financing of a PhD student in Neutron Detection Techniques between NP and ESS AB.

High resolution Rutherford scattering
(Nuclear Physics, applied)

In a project funded by the Royal Physiographic Society a new facility for material analysis is being installed at the Nuclear Microprobe Accelerator. The facility is based on classical Rutherford Back-Scattering analysis (RBS) but takes advantage of the recently developed double-sided silicon strip detectors for extremely high sensitivity. In a collaboration between the applied and fundamental research groups at the Nuclear Physics division we will work on enhanced detector resolution which is crucial for this application.

Iridium coincidence spectrometer
(Nuclear Physics – Geology)

In this project we will set up an iridium coincidence spectrometer in Lund with the aim to be significantly better than its predecessor, the Luis W. Alvarez - Iridium Coincidence Spectrometer (LWA-ICS) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The project is a collaboration between the Department of Geology and the Department of Physics and will be part of the Platform for Advanced Detector Systems.
