The Laboratory for Underground Nuclear Astrophysics (LUNA) is an experiment located deep underground at Gran Sasso National Laboratories (LNGS). Our mission is to study charged-particle-induced nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest.
IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Nuclear Physics 2022 awarded to Carlo Bruno
Carlo Bruno, a member of the LUNA Collaboration, was awarded the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Nuclear Physics 2022 "For his experimental work with low-energy nuclear reactions relevant for astrophysics and his leading role in transferring these experiments into storage rings using radioactive beams."
A paper on "Direct measurement of the 13C(α,n)16O cross section into the s-process Gamow peak" has been published in Physical Review Letters.
