High Precision Measurements to Probe the Physics of the Early Universe featuring Francesca Cavanna (INFN) (Opens in a new window)
Light elements were produced in the first few minutes of the Universe through a sequence of nuclear reactions known as Big Bang nucleosynthesis (BBN). Among the light elements produced during BBN, deuterium is an excellent indicator of cosmological parameters because its abundance is highly sensitive to the primordial baryon density.

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)
Dr. Masaomi Ono
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
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.
