Nuclear Structure Physics with Advanced Gamma-Detector Arrays
The Symposium "Nuclear Structure Physics with Advanced Gamma–Detector Arrays" (NSP13) marks 20 years from the first successful experimental campaigns with the gamma–ray spectrometer GASP and 10 years from the previous conference on “Nuclear Structure Physics with large gamma arrays” held in Legnaro–Padova. NSP13 is organized by INFN Padova, Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro and the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Padova.
The focus of the Symposium will be on the latest experimental results, theoretical challenges and the perspectives of nuclear structure physics with the modern gamma–ray Ge detectors, including the large gamma–ray detectors with AC shields and the most recent tracking arrays such as the AGATA demonstrator and GRETINA. Also the development of the many associated complementary detectors for gamma rays, neutrons, light and heavy-ions will be discussed.
The following main topics will be addressed during the discussions:
- Nuclear structure at extremes of isospin, mass, angular momentum and excitation energy
- Collective phenomena and symmetries
- Exotic decay modes
- Challenges in modern nuclear theory
- Aspects of nuclear astrophysics
- State of the art detectors
The Symposium is organized as a satellite event of the 25th International Nuclear Physics Conference (INPC2013) to be held June 2–7, 2013 in Firenze.
