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.
