We are pleased to announce a workshop on “Alpha decay as a probe of nuclear structure”.
The Workshop will take place at the AlbaNova University center, Stockholm and will be hosted by the nuclear physics group at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).
The aim of the workshop is to discuss the various aspects of contemporary nuclear physics relevant for the experimental and theoretical studies of nuclear alpha decay.
The advent of radioactive ion beam facilities has opened up new possibilities to investigate the radioactive decays of highly unstable nuclei including the region above 100 Sn.
Such studies have advanced significantly our understanding of nuclear radioactive decays, including proton decay, alpha
decay and heavy cluster decays.
Moreover, it turns out that these decay measurements can serve as a unique probe for studying nuclear structure. On the theoretical side, the development in nuclear many-body theories and supercomputing facilities have made it possible to simulate the nuclear clustering and decays from a microscopic and consistent perspective.
This workshop will review the status
of these structure and decay studies in heavy nuclei,
