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 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
Researchers at IMP have recently revealed the collective friction and wear behavior of tungsten alloy balls, the important candidate target material for the Accelerator Driven Subcritical System (ADS). The study was published in the journal of Tribology International. Learn more
