30 August 2017

On 20 august 2017 Adriaan van der Woude passed away at the age of 87. Adriaan has from the start of KVI in the 1960’s until his retirement in 1995 played a leading role in the nuclear physics research that has given KVI its high international standing. Adriaan was appointed as professor in experimental nuclear physics in 1980 until his retirement in 1995.

Van der Woude studied at the University of Groningen and did his PhD research under Prof. dr. H. Brinkman. After his promotion he closely worked with Brinkman to develop the first accelerator of the KVI. Between 1960 and 1972 he moved back and forth between the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (TN, USA) and the University of Groningen which he joined as a permanent staff member in 1972. Together with others he has paved the way for the collaboration with IPN-Orsay (France) to build the superconducting AGOR-cyclotron that is operational in Groningen since 1996.
