Low energy accelerators in Mexico: Scientific programs and opportunities for collaboration

by Prof. Efrain Chavez (Università UNAM Città del Messico)

Wednesday, 21 November 2018 from to (Europe/Rome)
at INFN-LNL ( LAE meeting room )
Experiments in nuclear physics research have been conducted for quite long time in Mexico in two institutions: ININ (Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Nucleares) and IFUNAM (Instituto de Física de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México). ININ has the largest accelerator: an EN-Tandem (6 MV). IFUNAM has a CN-Van de Graaff (5.5 MV), a 3 MV Tandem and, most recently a 1 MV Tandem. Those laboratories will be described briefly, including their peripheral equipment: SUGAR (a supersonic gas jet target), an all-digital acquisition system (FEBEX), new Silicon Detection Arrays (DSSSDs) and others. The recent and current scientific programs in those facilities will be reviewed, with an emphasis on research related with nuclear science: Nuclear Astrophysics, Low-energy Fusion Reactions and Nuclear Structure.
