Workshop on "Decay Spectroscopy at CARIBU: Advanced Fuel Cycle Applications, Nuclear Structure and Astrophysics"
April 14-16, 2011, Argonne National Laboratory
The Californium Rare Isotope Breeder Upgrade (CARIBU) ion source at ATLAS will produce intense, mass separated beams of neutron-rich fission fragments from a 1Curie 252Cf source. These beams will provide many interesting research opportunities in modeling decay heat in “Advanced Fuel Cycle” reactors, in nuclear structure of neutron-rich nuclei, and in studies of nuclei relevant to r-process nucleosynthesis. A workshop aimed at discussing these opportunities will take place on April 14-16, 2011 at the Physics Division Auditorium (Building 203), Argonne National Laboratory. The meeting will bring together researchers in all these fields to review the physics opportunities, the technical reach of experimental equipment, and the organizational issues connected with experiments. The workshop will have review talks of the physics goals and the equipment currently being installed. There will be discussions of interesting experiments in applications, structure and astrophysics, including discussions by the practicalities of proposing and executing experiments.
The workshop will cover a wide variety of topics in nuclear data needs for Advanced Fuel Cycle applications and their intersection with nuclear structure, and nuclear astrophysics research. The main focus will be on decay spectroscopy studies of neutron-rich fission fragments at CARIBU. Topics of interest include:
- Decay data of relevance to AFC applications with emphasis on reactor decay heat
- Discrete high-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy following radioactive decay and related topics
- Calorimetric studies of neutron-rich fission fragments using Total Absorption Gamma-ray Spectrometry (TAGS) technique
- Beta-delayed neutron emissions and related topics
- Decay data needs for nuclear astrophysics
To register for the Workshop, please see registration. Details about reserving lodging and transportation to Argonne National Laboratory are also available. Participants are encouraged to make presentations at the workshop about their specific physics interests and needs. Please notify organizers if you would like to give a talk by providing a short abstract, please see registration.
