Frontiers: Contribute to the Special Topic


                          We are pleased to be launching a new Frontiers Research Topic

                                     Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics in Plasma Traps

in light of your relevant competences and scientific roles in the frame of the PANDORA project, we are kindly inviting you to consider the submission of a contribution for the topic above.

We would organize the Research Topic according to the following sub-topics:

  1. Physics and Technology of plasma traps for fundamental studies: the PANDORA project;
  2. β-decay detection in plasmas: instruments and methods;
  3. Nuclear and Atomic Physics of β-decays in plasmas;
  4. Astrophysics Perspectives and Impact: nucleosynthesis of elements in the Universe

Authors are encouraged to submit contributions inherent to the single subtopics, or a merging of them, concerning the overall frame (the nuclear physics problem with fundamental and astrophysical implications) or specific issues and advances in the modelling, design, operations and diagnostics of the plasma based setup.

Topic Editors:
