Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Registration for this event is now closed.

Program description:

Last year history was made with the first discovery of a binary neutron star merger event by LIGO/Virgo, GW170817. The merger was subsequently studied in over seventy ground- and space-based observatories, at wavelengths across the electromagnetic spectrum. Observations in the visible and infrared are most convincingly interpreted as an r-process kilonova: an electromagnetic counterpart to the merger event powered by the radioactive decay of some hundredths of a solar mass of newly-produced heavy nuclei. Here we will discuss the astrophysical and nuclear physics uncertainties in the interpretation of the GW170817 kilonova, what we can learn about the astrophysical site or sites of the r process from this event, and the advances in nuclear experiment and theory most crucial to pursue in light of the new data.

Program organizers:

Rebecca Surman (University of Notre Dame)

Gail McLaughlin (North Carolina State University)

Ani Aprahamian (University of Notre Dame)

Anna Frebel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

 

Location and time: 

FRIB, East Lansing, MI, July 16-27, 2018.

The workshop is organized by the FRIB Theory Alliance and we hope to be able to cover local

expenses of a number of participants.

To apply: Please complete an application form.
