Fission-product spectrometer

Working at PN1-Lohengrin

This film was shot in the RED magnet housing on 28 May 2007, i.e. between experiment 3-01-498 (Beta-gamma spectroscopy of very neutron-rich Ge, As and Se isotopes) and experiment 3-01-501 (Determination of the mass and nuclear charge of heavy fission fragments from fission of Pu isotopes).

It shows how the complicated set of measuring devices and detectors required for an experiment is removed and the equipment required for the following experiment is installed.

The only point of the film is to show you how nuclear physicists must be slim and well-trained climbers, competent not only in in physics but also in screwing and unscrewing objects!
