Cryogenic Stopping Cell included in EPL Highlights of 2013

20 March 2014
The paper ‘First experimental results of a cryogenic stopping cell with short-lived, heavy uranium fragments produced at 1000 MeV/u' by Purushothaman et al. has been included in the EPL Highlights of 2013. This collection celebrates the most influential research published in EuroPhysics Letters in 2013. It is one of only five papers selected in the category "Elementary particles, fields & nuclear physics".

The paper describes the first on-line results of a cryogenic stopping cell, a novel device developed in a collaboration between KVI-CART, the University of Giessen and the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research (Darmstadt). This research was mainly funded within the collaboration between the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research and the University of Groningen.

KVI-CART authors on the paper are Manisha Ranjan, graduate student within the project, Peter Dendooven, project leader and experiment spokesperson and Nasser Kalantar-Nayestanaki, nuclear and hadron physics group leader. Also, first author Siva Purushothaman is a former KVI-CART graduate student.
