Title: Radioactive Nuclides in Outer Space

Abstract: Nuclear astrophysics is generally the study of the energy generation in stars and the origins of the chemical elements. In this highly multidisciplinary field, the job of experimental nuclear physicists is to constrain the nuclear reaction rates which are linked with astronomical observables. Observation of the lightest chemical element with no stable isotopes, technetium, in stellar spectra, was the first evidence that nucleosynthesis is an on-going process in our Galaxy.

Three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations unravel the evolution of SN 1987A from the explosion to the supernova remnant (Opens in a new window)

Abstract: Supernova 1987A (SN 1987A) provides a unique opportunity to unravel the  evolution of core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) from the explosions to  their supernova remnants (SNRs) thanks to its proximity and youth. Early  observation of iron lines has indicated matter mixing during the  explosion to convey innermost 56Ni to outer layers. Since the density  structure of the progenitor star affects the matter mixing, it provides  a hint on the properties of the progenitor star.

Constraining Tidal deformability from finite nuclei data, Bijay Agrawal (Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics) (Opens in a new window)

*Please note that this seminar will take place at 11:00am ET

Bijay Agrawal

Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics

The tidal deformability inferred from the Gravitational Waves, which are emitted by merging neutron stars, are instrumental in determining the equation of state (EoS) of dense matter. The importance of the observed finite nuclei properties in unveiling the correlations of the tidal deformability with the key EoS parameters will be discussed.

The Unexamined Life: Implications for Mental Well-Being (Opens in a new window)

IReNA Online Seminar

Seminars

Marsha Carolan

Michigan State University

Abstract:

Are you connected with your “self”? with others? With your past and present?

In this presentation specially dedicated to graduate students and postdocs, we will explore linkages with mental well-being. There will be opportunities for discussion and questions.
