About DFNA

Applied Nuclear Physics Department (DFNA) is focused on developing interdisciplinary applications in the field of nuclear physics, with great potential to expand research topics and to train our staff according to the competitive scientific environment requirements. Our department is proudly representing IFIN-HH in major international collaborations such as: CERN, FAIR and IAEA.

DFNA coordinates the activity of two tandem accelerators, a cyclotron and an ion beam implanter based on ECR (Electron Cyclotron Resonance) ion source. 1 MV and 3 MV TandetronTM electrostatic accelerators, together with the TR-19 cyclotron, were installed and commissioned at IFIN-HH in 2012. These machines are mainly used for Ion Beam Analysis (IBA), Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS), respectively production of radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals with medical applications.
