Prof. Nasser Kalantar from KVI visits IMP to Push Forward Bilateral Cooperation
Prof. Nasser Kalantar from the Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut(KVI) at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands visited the Institute of Modern Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMP, CAS) on June 1-2,2010.
Prof. Nasser Kalantar is an experimental nuclear physicist at KVI, University of Groningen. He is also the spokesperson and project manager of the EXL Group within FAIR-NUSTAR Project.
During his visit, Prof. Nasser Kalantar presented an excellent lecture on the EXL experiment at FAIR, where the physics and detector design considerations for EXL were shown in detail. He also had discussions on the subjects of mutual interest with scientific researchers of IMP.
The visit of Netherlandish scientist will push forward the cooperation between KVI and IMP.
