Hadrontherapy is a powerful radiotherapy technique characterized by a dose deposition highly localized in the tumor target and by a minimal dose released to the surrounding healthy tissues. However, on the path inside the patient, nuclear interactions of the beam with the tissues produce fragments with high Relative Biological Efficiency (RBE). An accurate measurement of fragments production...

One of the big uncertainties in extracting the transport coefficients by comparing the experimental data from A+A or p+A collisions to the results from relativistic dissipative fluid dynamics is the applicability of fluid dynamics in describing the evolution of such small systems. We investigate the applicability of fluid dynamics by comparing fluid-dynamical calculations to the...

Approximately 20% of nucleons in a nucleus are localized in short-range correlated (SRC) pairs, with relative momentum that exceeds the nuclear fermi momentum. Both inclusive and exclusive electron scattering experiments have confirmed that this pairing is a universal phenomenon, and that high-momentum nucleons always have a correlated partner. However, little is known about the state of the...

The extraction of neutrino mixing parameters and the CP-violating phase requires knowledge of the neutrino energy. This energy must be reconstructed from the final state of a neutrino-nucleus reaction since all long-baseline experiments use nuclear targets. This reconstruction requires detailed knowledge of the neutrino reactions with bound nucleons and of the final state interactions of...

CRESST is a direct detection dark matter experiment located in Italy at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso. The target used consists of scintillating CaWO4 crystals operated at low mK temperatures. Phonon and light signals are used for particle discrimination. For the ongoing data taking of CRESST-III, starting in 2016, an unprecedented energy threshold of below 100 eV was...
