Our consortium of world-leading experts in radioactive ion beam research and applications, laser spectroscopy, scientific laser technologies (industrial partners) and nuclear and atomic theorists will recruit and train 15 doctoral students. LISA will form a cohesive and symbiotic collaboration for training young scientists in the pursuit of the following research objectives:

Develop laser-based actinide ion beam production and purification techniques; develop laser technology; measurement of ionization potentials and electron affinities; extract atomic and nuclear properties from laser spectroscopy studies; enhance the prospects for direct use of the actinide isotopes themselves (theranostic applications), or the application of techniques for their detection (environmental monitoring).

LISA will be structured into 7 work packages (WP), separated according to specific types of technical or research challenges, training, communication and management, but highly interlinked to ensure a close interaction between the ESR fellows. This structure is designed to expose all trainees to the breath of activity types across the network and also to foster working relationships that will endure long after the project ends.
