Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

The Institute of Modern Physics ( IMP ) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences was founded in l957. After a half century of development, IMP has become the most important research center for heavy ion sciences in China. We have established active and fruitful collaboration with more than 40 institutions worldwide. IMP operates the Heavy I...

  • Researchers Report Fabrication and Functioning of Magnetically Gated PET Nanochannel

    Gated nanochannels extensively exist in biological system, functionalized as reporters to specific external stimuli or transporters of signaling messengers and molecules, such as voltage gated ion channels and ligand gated channels. Lately, researchers at the Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academic of Sciences demonstrated a novel magnetically gated PET nanochannel with magnetic sensors inside for the first time.Learn more

  • Scientists Report Heavy Ion Transfer in Charged vdW Cluster for the First Time

    It has been recognized that proton transfer is crucial to many chemical and biological processes. As these processes are known to be relevant to biophysics and radiation therapy, a question arises whether a massive ion could be transferred in biochemical processes and lead to fragmentation. Published in Nature Communications on June 12th, a new study helps address the above questions.Learn more

  • First identification of nuclear fragments of 78Kr projectile fragmentation reaction at RIBLL2

    The projectile fragmentation experiment was recently performed at the Heavy-Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou ( HIRFL ). With the help of these high-powered detectors and the precise Bρ determination method, the fragments produced by the fragmentation of 78Kr at 300 MeV/u were identified clearly at RIBLL2, which has a full momentum acceptance of ± 4.5%.Learn more


CiADS will be the world's first megawatt-class accelerator-driven subcritical system research facility.


In China, the Heavy Ion Research Facility at Lanzhou (HIRFL) is one major national research facility fo...
