12. Workshop on Fusion of Radioactive
Ions to be Held in December
The Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility will hold a workshop on the study of fusion reactions using radioactive nuclei with medium and heavy mass targets at energies near and below the Coulomb barrier. The workshop will be held at ORNL on December 2-3, 2005.
The purpose of this workshop, hosted by the HRIBF users' executive committee and the Joint Institute for Heavy Ion Research, is to bring together scientists who wish to study fusion and fission reactions in the radiaoctive ion beam (RIBs) environment and acquaint participants with HRIBF's beams and experimental facilities available for such experimental studies. The RIBs available from the HRIBF span a large range of neutron- and some proton-rich isotopes at energies suitable for these studies. In addition, plans for future measurements and related beam- and instrument development will be addressed. Theoretical approaches to deal with the quantity and quality of data from such experiments will also be part of the intended discussions.
