EPJ Web of Conferences Highlight - ESSENA11: 11th European Summer School on Experimental Nuclear Astrophysics
- Published on 10 March 2023
The European Summer School on Experimental Nuclear Astrophysics has run for more than 2 decades and brings together nuclear physicists and astrophysicists from major universities, laboratories and research facilities. It has been organized jointly by the INFN Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (Catania) and the Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia “E. Majorana” of the Catania University.
It is an opportunity to present novel work across the full range of both theoretical and experimental activities covering all novel aspects ranging from cosmology to stellar physics as well as nuclear aspects, methods and instruments related to investigations of nuclear reactions important for nuclear astrophysics.
As one of the historically oldest schools on this field, it has always provided a valuable opportunity for presenting and discussing work, stimulating contact between young researchers and experts, beyond the normal hours of lectures.
Highlight themes at this year’s event primordial nucleosynthesis, indirect methods, underground laboratories, radioactive ion beams facilities as well as stellar structure and evolution. In the framework of the school a public lecture of prof. Jocelyn bell was held as a moment of strong interaction with younger students.
