International Conference on “Impact of Exotic Nuclear Structure on Explosive Nucleosynthesis”
Release time:September 8, 2017 /

The international workshop on “Impact of Exotic Nuclear Structure on Explosive Nucleosynthesis” hosted by International Research Center for Nuclei and Particles in the Cosmos (IRCNPC) and International Research Center for Big Bang Cosmology and Element Genesis (IRCBBC) in School of Physics and Nuclear Energy Engineering of BUAA will be held from November 23rd to 24th, 2017. The aim of this workshop is to address various aspects of nuclear structure that affect nuclear masses and reaction/decay rates, and to discuss their impact on nuclear astrophysics, with a particular focus on the synthesis of medium-mass to heavy-mass nuclei in explosive stellar environments. The workshop program will include the major topics both in experimental and theoretical researches on:

o Recent progress in study of neutron-rich isotopes far from stability

o (n,γ) and (γ,n) reactions and their impact on s- and r-process paths

o Fission in heavy-element synthesis

o Effects of nuclear isomers in nucleosynthesis

o New ideas of nucleo-cosmochronometer/-cosmothermometer

o New experimental techniques and facilities

o Global calculations of nuclear mass, deformation, and fission

o Roles of neutrinos and nuclear weak response in astrophysics

o Modeling supernovae, GRB, and neutron star and black hole merger dynamics

o Developing nucleosynthesis code for r-, s-, γ-, νp-processes
