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.
The Impact of the LIGO/VIRGO Neutron Star Merger Discovery on Research in Nuclear Science and Nuclear Astrophysics (Opens in a new window)
Watch nuclear scientists as they discuss the impact of the LIGO/VIRGO neutron star merger discovery and followup observations on nuclear science and nuclear astrophysics.
This workshop will assemble leading experts from stellar evolution, star formation, accretion physics, and cosmology, in order to shed new light on the origin, evolution, and collapse of supermassive stars, as well as their life after death as the progenitors of the first massive quasars.
We would like to invite you to participate in the Celebration of CEMP & Gala of GALAH workshop to be held on November 13-17, 2017, at the Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
The meeting will consider two broad themes:
A week long program at one of two world leading nuclear physics laboratories: Nuclear Science Laboratory located on the campus of the University of Notre Dame and the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory located on the campus of Michigan State University. Learn nuclear astrophysics through lectures from faculty, and modern physics experiments.
MICRA 2017 will be an interdisciplinary workshop aimed at fostering exchange between nuclear (astro-)physicists and computational modelers of relativistic astrophysical phenomena, such as the mergers of neutron star and core-collapse supernovae. A major goal of the workshop series is to foster efforts to include increasingly realistic microphysics in simulations so that we can confidently interpret multi-messenger observations of high density environments.
This is the 6th of the series of biennial workshops dedicated to nucleosynthesis of heavy neutron-deficient nuclei. The workshop covers a wide range of topics related to p-nuclei:
