Perturbed Angle Correlation (PAC)

The Perturbed Angular Correlation is an exotic method to perform measurements in nuclear physics. It is used in nuclear solid state physics, in biophysics and in inorganic chemistry, to investigate properties od solids, proteins and DNA chains. In nuclear physics PAC is used also to determine nuclear moments.

Worldwide there are only a few groups who use and are equipped with PAC setups.

A person of our staff works currently at ISOLDE-CERN , where measurements are regularly performed. With this setup we have the possibility to isolate a large number of isotopes, to be used as isotope-beam.

Our group is involved in local measurements of multiferroics within the CERN experiment IS647:

Local Probing of Ferroic and Multiferroic Compounds
