A second EQUIPEX for GANIL News Item A second EQUIPEX for GANIL - 21 December 2011
After S3 (next-generation spectrometer for physics with SPIRAL2) earlier this year, the equipment of Excellence DESIR (experimental room for physics at low energy with SPIRAL2) coordinated by GANIL, was selected among 270 projects by the National Agency of Research (ANR), led by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. Its implementation (July 2012 - June 2015) and the first years of its operation (July 2015 - December 2019) will be financed by resources reserved for facilities of Excellence (EQUIPEX). The amount allocated is € 9 million.

In line with an annual tradition, GANIL will participate in the French Science Day events, and will present its activities at Caen's Science Village.
Understanding stellar explosions is less straightforward than previously thought News Item Understanding stellar explosions is less straightforward than previously thought - 27 April 2009
Stellar explosions called novæ are caused by nuclear reactions between the star's atoms. In order to better understand such violent phenomena, astrophysicists study the radiation emitted by certain types of atom, and in particular the fluorine-18 produced by these reactions. Now, researchers at GANIL, in collaboration with teams from the UK, Belgium, Romania and France, have determined that fluorine-18 appears to be less abundant than expected. This discovery therefore reduces the chances of observing the radiation emitted by this atom. It implies new constraints for the observation and understanding of novæ.
