Physical Details: 189 pp.
Language: Portuguese

This book is a proposed interpretative summary of the crises and changes to which he was subject to Sacavém Laboratory, one geared State Laboratory to conduct nuclear energy research, throughout its existence of more than half a century. It is the fit man and not the equipping material that is essential in a nation. The author of Memórias para a História de um Laboratório de Estado is a retired physicist and former administrator of the State Laboratory created under the name Laboratório de Física e Engenharia Nucleares (Laboratory of Nuclear Physics and Engineering) (LFEN). This book offers a first-hand account of this institution, since its creation in 1959 until its extinction in 2012, and provides historians of science with a perfect example to reflect upon the virtues and pitfalls of personal institutional histories.


Description The State Laboratory is a nuclear engineering laboratory that was created under the name Laboratório de Física e Engenharia Nucleares (LFEN).
