Editorial – Nuclear physics for cultural heritage

By I.J. Douglas MacGregor. Published on 24 November 2016 in:
November 2016, , , ,

A topical review by the Nuclear Physics Division of the European Physical Society, edited by Anna Macková, Douglas MacGregor, Faiçal Azaiez, Johan Nyberg, and Eli Piasetzky.

Nuclear physics applications in medicine and energy are well known and widely reported. Less well known are the many important nuclear and related techniques used for the study, characterization, assessment and preservation of cultural heritage. There has been enormous progress in this field in recent years and the current review aims to provide the public with a popular and accessible account of this work.

By Angela Bracco. Published on 26 January 2016 in:
Editorial, January 2016, , , ,

The Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee [NuPECC] has just started the process for the preparation of a new Long Range Plan (LRP) for nuclear science in Europe. A new European strategy document is indeed needed since the last one dates from 2010 and because these documents are important references for research in the field over a period of 5-7 years.
