Covid-19 crisis: Thesis and HDR Defences start again thanks to online tools

Exceptional circumstances call for exceptional measures: through its PRA (Plan de Reprise d'Activités- Disaster recovery plan), IJCLab supports the organization of Thesis Defences and HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches), applying appropriate protection measures!

Andromède at IJCLab helps the STELLA experiment to study carbon fusion in massive stars

To calculate more reliable stellar evolution scenarios, astrophysicists need to know as precisely as possible the rate of carbon fusion. Nuclear physicists who reproduce stellar energy conditions in the laboratory, through collisions between a particle beam and a target, are able to provide direct measurements of carbon fusion rates...

The latest results from the Double-Chooz experiment contributes to our understanding of neutrinos

Since the shutdown of its detectors in early 2018, the international Double-Chooz collaboration has continued to analyze its data in order to constrain the θ13 angle as much as possible. Its value characterizes the least known mode of oscillation of neutrinos on which subsequent research on the asymmetry between neutrinos and antineutrinos hinges.

ALTO has gained a new connection wtih 10 Gb/s !

Some of the large-scale experiments at ALTO require the acquisition of large volumes of data. In preparation for the Nu-Ball experiment, it was necessary to resolve the problem of transferring large amounts of data via the internet, from one of the ALTO experiment rooms to VirtualData.

IJCLab a new laboratory

Since January 1, 2020, 5 laboratories, CSNSM, IMNC, IPN, LAL and LPT located on the Orsay campus of the Université Paris-Saclay have merged  to become the Laboratory of Physics of the 2 infinities Irène Joliot Curie, also called IJCLab. Its governing bodies are CNRS (IN2P3 and INP), Université Paris-Saclay and Université de Paris.
