Workshop on Photonuclear Research at the Intensity Frontier
Discussions of Nuclear Physics Research with Intense Gamma-ray Beams
• Register when you register for the meeting
• Pre-registration required
Friday, April 4, 2014
8:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Who Should Attend?
All who are interested in using mono-energetic gamma-ray beams at energies below about 200 MeV for nuclear physics research,including faculty, scientists, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.
The topics covered in the workshop include nuclear phenomena that can be probed with photonuclear reactions in the energy range from 1 to 160 MeV. The workshop is motivated by the present and future gamma-ray beam capabilities that would be made possible by upgrades to the High Intensity Gamma-ray Source (HIGS) at TUNL and by the construction of the Extreme Light Infrastructure for Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) in Bucharest. The main scientific sessions of the workshop are:
- Nuclear Structure (many-body nuclear physics)
- Nuclear AstrophysicsLow-Energy QCD (few-nucleon systems and hadron structure)
- Fundamental Symmetries (mainly hadronic parity violation in few-nucleon systems)
- Photo-pion physics (e.g., the pi0-N scattering length)
