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.
Chinese researchers recently discovered a new effect that can generate spin-polarization in fluid. The new effect, which is called "shear-induced polarization (SIP)", predicts that shear flow can induce polarization in the momentum space. Learn more
Researchers from IMP and their collaborators have systematically measured the knockout cross sections of neutron-rich carbon isotopes at the intermediate- to high-energy region by using the External Target Facility (ETF) of the Cooler Storage Ring (CSR) at the Heavy Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL).

Researchers at the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have lately conducted a series of theoretical investigations in the ab initio QED framework to predict experiments in the near future. The results have been published in Physical Review A as a letter and an article. Learn more
