Nuclear Astrophysics Experiments with High-Intensity Ion and Photon Beams

Christian Iliadis (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

Nuclear astrophysics constitutes a multidisciplinary crucible of knowledge addressing key questions in fundamental research, ranging from the age of the Universe to the origin of cosmic rays, from supernova explosion mechanisms to the origin of the solar system. This talk will present recent results of nuclear astrophysics measurements performed at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory using high-intensity proton beams (at the LENA facility) and mono-energetic gamma-ray beams (at the HIgS facility). Astrophysical implications for our understanding of AGB stars, classical novae, and the s-process will be discussed.
