By Andrea Pisent. Published on 23 June 2016 in:
June 2016, News, , , ,

On 21 April 2016 in Rokkasho (Japan) a ceremony was held for the installation of the low energy section of a very powerful accelerator (LIPAc) representing a prototype for the International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility (IFMIF). The aim of IFMIF, and of the LIPAc accelerator, is the production of very high intense fluxes of high energy monoenergetic neutrons which are needed for testing the structural resistance of materials to be employed in Nuclear Fusion Reactors.

News, , , , , ,

The European Physical Society sends its heartfelt congratulations to the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex [J-PARC], for their progress in recovering from the heavy damage suffered during the tragic earthquake of March last year.

“In May 2011, we planned to restore beams at J-PARC by the end of December 2011. Since then, all the J-PARC people have worked day and night, and even weekends. Finally, on 9 December, the switch of the Linac was turned on…
