Evening Lecture – The first phase of MYRRHA: Small Particles for Big Applications
The Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN) is actively working on designing and building a multifunctional research installation in Mol: MYRRHA. This presentation will discuss the facilities to be constructed in the first phase of the MYRRHA project together with their applications.
Lucia PopescuHead of Unit Proton Target Research at SCK•CEN
Lucia Popescu graduated from the faculty of physics at Bucharest university, Romania. In 2005, she obtained a PhD in physics at Ghent university in Belgium. Her doctoral studies have been focused on the nuclear structure of several isotopes of Co, Ni and Cu. After a short post-doc in Groningen the Netherlands, Lucia returned to Belgium in 2007, as researcher at SCK•CEN, in Mol. Since 2010, she is in charge with ISOL@MYRRHA: a part of the MYRRHA project dedicated to the production of mass-separated radioisotopes extracted on-line.
