Our research focuses on the heaviest elements in the periodic table:
the actinides and transactinides.
The main activities include the study of
- production and nuclear properties of the superheavy elements (SHE)
- gas-phase chemical studies of transactinide elements and their compounds
- production of tailor-made actinide samples for chemistry and physics applications
