On January 1, 2019, the Hessian Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts has established the International Center for Nuclear Photonics at TU Darmstadt in the framework of the LOEWE initiative as a new research cluster. Nuclear Photonics is a new field of research that combines the investigation and application of high-power laser-based particle sources with techniques in nuclear physics, in particular photonuclear reactions. Establishing an International Center for Nuclear Photonics is aimed at providing a “home base” for Hessian, German, and International Groups for projects using new major research infrastructure, in particular in the context of the European Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) that is currently being realized as a distributed center for research in Nuclear Photonics.
