Nuclear astrophysics

Research Program Description Researcher(s)
Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Centre for the Evolution of the Elements
Research program to understand the rise of the elements in the early universe.

Nucleosynthesis Grid
Collaboration to study the major element production sites in stars and stellar explosions. The simulation datasets are input for models of chemical evolution in galaxies.
Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC)

Experiments at TRIUMF to obtain nuclear physics data needed in computations of the origin of elements in stars. More information on nuclear astrophysics at TRIUMF .
