POSTPONED - Taking the Temperature: Statistical Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics and Applications (T3) (Opens in a new window)

Ohio University, Athens, Ohio

Workshops & Conferences

Statistical estimates of nuclear reaction rates are essential ingredients for astrophysical model calculations, e.g. r-process nucleosynthesis in neutron star mergers, and nuclear applications, e.g. next generation nuclear reactor performance. Rate calculations require experimental or theoretical constraints for nuclear properties such as level densities (temperature), gamma-strength functions, particle optical potentials, and level spin distributions.

16th International Symposium on Nuclei in the Cosmos (Opens in a new window)

Chengdu, China

School
Workshops & Conferences

Nuclei in the Cosmos is the most important international meeting in the field of nuclear astrophysics. It brings together nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, astronomers, theoretical astrophysicists, cosmo-chemists, and others interested in the scientific questions at the interface of nuclear physics and astrophysics. These questions concern, for example, the origin of the elements in the cosmos and the nuclear reactions that occur in the big bang, in stars, and in stellar explosions.

Astrophysics with Radioactive Isotopes (AwRI2020) (Opens in a new window)

Budapest, Hungary

Workshops & Conferences

Radioactive nuclei play a significant role in many current astrophysical quests. From the origin of the elements through the driving of the emissions from supernovae (56Ni) and kilonovae (r-process radioactivity), they are crucial for direct studies of galactic enrichment (7Be, 26Al, 44Ti, 60Fe, 99Tc, 244Pu, ...) and for new insights on stellar explosions (56/57Ni, 44Ti).
