ECT* Conference room

This Humboldt Kolleg will bring together key experimenters and theorists in the physics of low-energy nuclear science to debate recent achievements and discuss in depth new perspectives for further progress in the understanding of the properties and production mechanisms of the heaviest nuclei. Combining nuclear structure and reaction dynamics is the major issue for planning and interpreting measurements in the new generation of rare-isotope beam facilities, such as FRIB in USA, SPIRAL2 in France, FAIR in Germany and RIBF in Japan. These facilities have dedicated, low-energy research programmes using re-accelerated exotic beams for understanding the physics of neutron-rich matter of importance for understanding galactic chemical evolution. The Kolleg will address the latest progresses in the experimental production of the heaviest isotopes and their theoretical descriptions. We expect that the Humboldt Kolleg will facilitate the participants to establish a closer cooperation in these exciting areas of low-energy nuclear science as well as to critically evaluate what is stopping progress in the field. The special review lectures of Humboldtians will be very useful and inspiring, promoting the AvH-Foundation among graduate students and young researchers.

This meeting is sponsored by a grant from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany)
