Reactors, Stars, Neutrinos: The Nuclear Physics Connection

címmel előadást tart.

Az előadás előtt 10:30-tól tea, vendégeket szívesen látunk.

Máté Zoltán

Nuclear reactors are a powerful source of energy but also of interesting
nuclear physics. The future of nuclear energy is intensely debated, but in
the mean time new reactor types are proposed and investigated. They are
expected to be safer and more reliable and produce less waste or even help to
destroy the accumulated one. Their design requires new and more accurate data
on neutron reactions (capture and fission) and also on decay data (beta
delayed neutron fraction and energy released by the decay of fission
products). Interestingly enough similar nuclear physics information is
required to understand the evolution and death of stars and the fabrication
of elements in the Universe (s-process and r-process). Nuclear reactors are
also a powerful source of anti-neutrinos, which have been used by a new
generation of experiments to demonstrate their oscillatory nature. They have
revealed as well some anomalies, which could indicate “new physics” provided
it is not due to more mundane nuclear physics phenomena. All this reveals a
close connection between reactor technology, nuclear astrophysics and
fundamental physics, which is more clearly shown by the fact that the same or
very similar experiments can contribute to all of them. Examples of this will
be shown.
