Founded in 1957, IMP, with more than 900 staff and over 400 students, has become the most important research center for heavy-ion science and technology in China.
Scientists have demonstrated the effectiveness of an innovative nuclear mass measurement method using the rare-RI ring (R3) facility at the Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory, and applied it to the mass measurement of a neutron-rich palladium isotope. The paper on these findings was published in Physical Review Letters on April 15. Learn more
A research team led by the scientists at IMP has explored the nature of the reported low-spin wobbling bands in atomic nuclei. New investigation suggests that the nuclear wobbling interpretation is not feasible at low spins. Learn more
A new study on the irradiation evaluation of high-entropy carbide ceramics (HECCs) has demonstrated their remarkable irradiation resistance at high temperature, shedding new light on the basic understanding of irradiation mechanisms of HECCs.Learn more
