30 years of radioactive ion beam physics

News del 17/11/2014

"Re-writing Nuclear Physics textbooks: 30 years of radioactive ion beam physics" will be held in a Pisa, at the Polo Didattico Fibonacci, Largo B. Pontecorvo 3, from 20th to 24th July, 2015.

The event will celebrate 30 years since the first genuine work on radioactive ion beams (RIBs) used to study properties of atomic nuclei. Since then Low Energy Nuclear Physics research fed by experiments at various facilities all over the world has experienced a great revival supported by widespread theoretical efforts which have changed deeply our understanding of nuclei and their interactions.

Scope of the event is to attract and educate the best possible students introducing them to the wonders of Physics with RIBs.

The activity will consist in twelve lectures. Each lecture will cover a topic contained in a standard Nuclear Physics textbook extended to show how our understanding has deeply changed due to the experience accumulated with RIB physics since 1985.

The initiators of the field Björn Jonson (Fundamental Physics, Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden) and Isao Tanihata (SPANEE and IRCNPC, Beihang University, Beijing, China and RCNP, Osaka University, Japan) will be present as special guests.
