WelcomeWe have established a collaboration for studies of Nuclear Astrophysics with radioactive beams at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams [FRIB]. It is intended to serve as an umbrella collaboration that encompasses the experimental, theoretical, and equipment projects in nuclear astrophysics at FRIB, as well as related astrophysics and observational astronomy projects.
Our Highest Priority project is SECAR - the Separator for Capture Reactions. SECAR will be built in the 3 MeV Hall at FRIB and will be optimized for direct measurements of capture reactions on unstable nuclei that power stellar explosions. SECAR is the flag ship experiment for the FRIB nuclear astrophysics community. More information on SECAR can be found on these pages.
The FRIB Astrophysics Collabration website is used to share information on science -- both experiment and theory -- as well as on equipment, collaboration meetings, and documents necessary to bring our plans to reality.
Please join our collaboration to help build an exciting research program in nuclear astrophysics at FRIB ! You can view our membership list on this page. If you have any questions about the collaboration, please contact us for further information.
Nuclear Astrophysics Breakout Session at ANL on August 16-17, 2012:
In connection with the the Low Energy Community Meeting to be held on August 17-18, 2012 at Argonne National Lab, there will be a Nuclear Astrophysics Breakout Session on the afternoon and evening of Thursday, Aug. 16. This meeting will cover a wide range of topics for nuclear astrophysics in the FRIB era, and will include theory and observation discussions. There will also be a more focussed meeting on equipment for FRIB on Friday, August 17. Results of these discussions will be presented in a Plenary session at the Low Energy Community Meeting on Saturday morning, Aug. 18. For more details on this meeting to register, please see our Meetings page.
