Research & Teaching
This year, the masterclasses in Mororcco are organised by the Laboratory of Nuclear Physics (LNPR) which was created in the 70s, the Nuclear Physics Laboratory (LPNR) is a research facility of the University Mohammed V in Rabat, one of the biggest university in the country where each year about 10,000 graduates are trained annually in 85 different disciplines.
Initially the LPNR had a neutron generator accelerator of 14 MeV, T-400, from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This accelerator was largely used to cross sections measurements of nuclear reactions neutron activation which are of paramount importance to the industry.
Now, the laboratory is involved in several experimental thematic research, pursued in the framework of large international collaborations with major research infrastructure, centers accelerators particles and large telescopes.
1- Reactor physics
TRIGA reactor Study MARKII
Study of innovative reactor with cermet and TRISO (old APOLLO2, SRAC 95, MCNP, TRIPOLI (research contract with the IAEA)
Improved TDT code (method of characteristics) and tracing acceleration GUI,
Monte Carlo method for a hexagonal network
2- High Energy and Astroparticle Physics and
Contribution to the analysis of data from the ATLAS experiment at the LHC in Geneva.
Research for resonance and for new physics beyond the standard model
Study and simulation of the upgrade of the Forward ATLAS calorimeter
Research and study of temporal variations in the flow of muons collected using the ANTARES telescope.
3- Physics for Medicine
