What is Dark Matter ?

Marco Cirelli

LPTHE Jussieu

Dark Matter constitutes 84% of the mass and about 26% of the total energy density in the Universe, but its identity is still unknown. I will review (perhaps in a biased way) the current popular candidates from a theoretical point of view and sketch the status of some of the searches.


Research on the Production of medical radionuclides

Mateusz Sitarz

University of Warsaw - Subatech - ARRONAX

Many radioactive isotopes are commonly used in medicine, both in diagnosis and therapy. However, steady development of nuclear medicine demands the application of new medical radioisotopes which production and chemical processing is still under the investigation. During the seminar, I will present two of them, scandium and ruthenium, recently researched by the France-Poland collaboration [1,2].
