International collaboration:

We are members of several international collaborations that were created around the important experimental facilities in Europe and USA:

  • n_TOF (Neutron Time-of-Flight facility) installed at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland
  • DANCE (Detector for Advanced Neutron Capture Experiments) installed at Los Alamos Neutron Scattering Center, Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA
  • TSC measurement (Two-Step Cascades measurement at LVR-15 research reactor) Research Centre Řež
  • GELINA (Neutron Time-of-Flight facility) installed at Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements (IRMM), Geel, Belgium
  • EXILL campaign (EXOGAM detector installed at ILL), ILL, Grenoble, France
