Laboratory Portrait: The Bordeaux Nuclear Research Center

Abstract : The Centre d'Etudes Nucléaires at Bordeaux-Gradignan (CENBG) is a joint research unit of the CNRS/IN2P3 and the University Bordeaux 1 “Science and Technology.” The laboratory is composed of 35 permanent researchers (half of them are employed by the University), 40 permanent engineers and technicians, and about 15 Ph.D. students, post-docs, and visitors. The scientific program covers a broad range of topics in nuclear physics, particle physics, and astroparticle physics as well as applications of subatomic physics to different multidisciplinary fields. The main research subjects are: exotic nuclei far from the valley of beta stability and rare radioactive decays, neutrino physics (type and mass of the neutrino) and double beta decay, high energy gamma ray astronomy, innovative approaches to nuclear power generation and transmutation of nuclear waste, laser-induced nuclear excitations, the effects of various environmental exposures studied via macro-, micro-, or nano-ion beams using the new platform AIFIRA and finally theoretical studies of nuclear and hadronic matter. All these activities take place within strong national and international collaborations involving the academic world and enabling the selection and training of high-quality students and post-doctoral researchers.
