4:00 - 5:00 pm EST
Nieuwland Science Hall, Room 124
The low energy nuclear physics program at LLNL consists of a myriad of accelerator based and table top experiments. Studies include nuclear structure, neutron induced cross section measurements, determination of cross sections using the surrogate reaction technique, nuclear-atomic plasma induced interactions and beta decay studies. In this seminar, I will provide an overview of our low energy nuclear physics research program at LLNL. These include efforts at the Texas A&M Cyclotron Institute, Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Hyperion, Hydra and NeutronSTAR detector systems will also be discussed in detail.
