HRIBF Workshop: Transfer Reactions
The Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) at Oak Ridge National
Laboratory (ORNL) will be the site of a number of experiments involving
transfer reactions in the near future. The value of such experiments in
helping to understand nuclear structure was established a half century ago
with light ion beams, although relatively few experiments of this nature
have been done in the past 30 years. Now that radioactive ion beams (RIBs)
are available to study exotic nuclear species, transfer reactions are again
needed, both to provide structure information generally and to measure
properties that are pertinent to specific astrophysical reactions.
Because experiments with RIBs must be done in
inverse kinematics, significant differences in experimental techniques are
required. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together
those interested in doing transfer reaction experiments at the HRIBF, to
acquaint them with HRIBF capabilities for such experiments, and to address
the issues involved in acquiring and interpreting transfer reaction data.
The workshop, organized by HRIBF Users Committee, will be held at ORNL on
June 21 and 22, 2002. At this time we anticipate two overview talks, one
dealing with experimental issues and one with data interpretation and
calculations. These will be followed by a number of working sessions that
will target specific issues. We welcome your suggestions, both for topics
that should be discussed and for speakers of the overview talks. Further,
if you would like to make a short contributed presentation that addresses
a specific technical topic, please provide more information on the
registration form. Details pertaining to lodging can be found below.
Summary of relevent information
- Participants pay all travel costs.
- Version of transparencies (paper OK, pdf preferred) should be
made available to participants.
- Lunch and breaks provided by JIHIR/HRIBF; no registration fee.
- Contributed talks should be no more than 15 minutes.
- Due to the narrow focus of the workshop, it is hoped that there will
be no parallel working group sessions.
