Krypton and Xenon beam experiments

During November heavy Krypton and Xenon beams will be used in the AFRODITE vault. These massive beams bombard Deuterium, an isotope of the lightest element, Hydrogen.

The use of these heavy beams allows for the study of interesting nuclear physics properties that can help in our understanding of how elements are produced in the universe. The experiments take place in the AFRODITE vault and utilize four different type of detectors, including the first three ALBA detectors.
