NUSTAR - Nuclear Structure, Astrophysics and Reactions



It is assumed that the chemical elements heavier than iron originate from collapsing stars or stellar collisions. The underlying processes depend on the nuclear forces and symetries in rare isotopes.

To investigate the Nuclear Structure, Astrophysics and Reactions (NUSTAR) with intensive secondary beams of such rare isotope experiments the use of the Super-FRS (Fragment-Separator) and a series of complimentary detector set-ups are foreseen. They should clarify relevant details of the nuclear configuration of the abundance of heavy elements, new knowledge about the interior of neutron stars and other unsolved astrophysical puzzles are expected.
