Low-Energy Reaction Dynamics of Heavy-Ions and Exotic Nuclei
The understanding of the physics of low-energy nuclear reaction is crucial for explaining the chemical evolution of the Universe. Nuclear-reaction physics research has entered a new era with developments of rare-isotope beam facilities, at which nuclear reactions are the primary probe of the new physics, such as novel structural changes. Innovative detection systems are allowing measurements of unprecedented selectivity and precision, including those using intense stable beams. These require new theoretical investigations in the nuclear structure and reaction dynamics. Properly combining many-body nuclear-structure information and reaction dynamics is a major outstanding problem. The evolution of the nuclear shells toward the proton and neutron drip-lines is of great interest. The expansion of the nuclide chart to unknown isotopes and elements is one of the fundamental problems. In-depth discussions of selected, important recent experimental and theoretical developments in the field of low-energy nuclear reaction physics among the world's leading scientists is the central objective of this workshop. This will help identify what is holding up progress in the field.
