Nuclear astrophysics studies at NIPNE
Horia Hulubei Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, Bucharest-Magurele, Romania
Published online: 14 January 2020
I will present results of doing nuclear astrophysics research at the National Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, Bucharest-Magurele in the last 2-3 years.
Own Nuclear Astrophysics Group (NAG) is focused on the basic types of experiments:
Direct measurements at low and very low energies with ion or alpha beams from the local 3 MV tandetron accelerator. We concentrate on activation measurements. The use of the ultra-low background laboratory in a salt mine at Slanic-Prahova, about 120 km away and of a beta-gamma coincidence unit at home is providing competitive sensitivity.
Indirect measurements done with beams at international facilities with radioactive beams: TAMU and RIBF RIKEN.
With help from colleagues, I will mention some theory advances, too.
