part2- Argonne Lab

The first experiment to combine GRETINA and Phoswich detectors.


GRETINA -- the world most powerful Gamma-ray detector so far.

GRETINA started working from 2013.

Phoswich is the latest particle detector.




GRETINA's predecessor -- Gammasphere, it consists 110 Ge detectors.

It appears in the Hulk movie.

The system has been located in an independent room with temperature control.




Very often you need to be patient, you need to wait.

The panoramic view near the OLD guest house, Argonne Lab.

We encountered several deers ( probably 10) here.

The old guest house was derelict since it was army base before.
