National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory Seminar  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Zach Meisel, Ohio University, will be speaking.

The presentation is titled "Constraining Ultradense Matter with Nuclear and Numerical Experiments."

Accreting neutron stars provide a unique window onto the behavior of matter at extreme density. The X-ray burst, superburst, and crust cooling episodes that several such stars go through provide signatures of the neutron star outer layers' thermal and compositional structure, along with bulk properties of the star. Interpreting these signatures requires model-observation comparisons. Meanwhile, the astrophysics model calculation results can be sensitive to the properties of the hundreds of atomic nuclei found near the neutron star surface. I will present results of numerical experiments performed with astrophysics model calculations that help prioritize nuclear physics studies, as well as results from recent nuclear physics experiments that constrain key nuclear uncertainties. I will briefly discuss the outlook for future measurements at FRIB.
