INT-JINA Topical Workshop (Opens in a new window)

Institute for Nuclear Theory, Seattle, WA

Workshops & Conferences

Observation of gravitational waves (GWs), gamma-rays, x-rays, optical, infrared and radio waves from a neutron star (NS) merger event, now called GW170817, has the potential to revolutionize nuclear astrophysics. Data from this event has already provided strong hints that heavy elements are produced in NS mergers, and that these elements directly influence the observed optical and infra-red light curves. Properties of dense matter which was expected to play a key role also appear to be essential in interpreting the GW data.

Mini-PAN (Opens in a new window)

Lansing Community College

Outreach

A half-day event, this introduced more than 50 high school physics students in LCC’s Early College to the field of nuclear astrophysics. It included hands-on lessons regarding isotopes, nuclear reactions, and neutron capture. Graduate students gave brief explanations of their research and highlighted their own paths that led to JINA-CEE.
