    Important notice: Visitors of the facilities at the Nuclear Physics Institute (tandetron, cyclotron and neutron sources) have to register prior to visit. For this reason the participants who intend to join the laboratory tour are kindly asked to provide the following information required for your registration:
  • Name (as written on your passport):
  • Passport number (or ID card number for EU citizens):
  • Country:
  • Please send the data by e-mail to the address slopos-15@mff.cuni.cz
    till July 31, 2019 . This allows us to arrange your registration.

    The laboratory tour includes:

  • guided visit to the positron annihilation laboratory at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague, V Holesovickach 2, 180 00 Praha 8. The laboratory is equipped with digital positron lifetime spectrometers, digital coincidence Doppler broadening spectrometers and variable energy slow positron beam with a deposition chamber for in-situ measurement of thin films.

  • Excursion to the Laboratory of tandetron at the Nuclear Physics Institute of the Czech Academy of Science. The Tandetron 4130 MC is a compact, multipurpose linear electrostatic tandem accelerator system produced by High Voltage Engineering Europa and installed in November 2005. The main purpose of the Tandetron is production of ion beams with energies in the range from 200 keV to 10 MeV of almost all elements of the periodic system.
    • Operating energy range: 200 keV - 10 MeV
    • Terminal voltage: 200 kV - 3 MV
    • Produced accelerated ions: H - Au
    • Ion beam currents: 10-9 - 10-6 A

  • Excursion to the Laboratory of Cyclotron and Fast Neutron Generators. The isochronous cyclotron U-120M is a versatile machine operated both in positive and negative modes. It can accelerate light ions (H+, H-, D+, D-,3He+2, 4He+2) in the energy range from 1 to 55 MeV. Positive ions (H+, D+, 3He+2, 4He+2) are extracted from the cyclotron by means of three sections electrostatic deflection system with a magnetic kicker. Negative ions H-, D- are extracted by a stripping method using a thin carbon foil. A set of high-power broad-spectrum and quasi-monoenergetic neutron fields at energies up to 35 MeV are produced using ion-beam reactions on special neutron source targets.
