In Russia, Dubna, a new facility is built purely dedicated to superheavy element research. Its name, “The Superheavy Element Factory”, speaks for itself, the objective is to synthesise new chemical elements.
The following video gets you properly introduced to the factory and also the current status of superheavy element research.
Meanwhile, we are developing the best particle-photon coincidence setup for the study of nuclear structure properties in the superheavy element region. The future is exciting!
