Understanding the strong nuclear interaction is the fundamental quest with which the structures of nuclei are explored. Nuclear level lifetimes, transition moments and decay probabilities provide the direct insight in to the n-n interaction derived from the strong and electromagnetic forces acting among the nucleons.
In recent times, the development and use of the state-of-the-art detector arrays and newer techniques for lifetime, transition moment, transition probability & beta decay measurements are of extreme interest in experimental nuclear structure studies through gamma ray spectroscopy.
Development & up-gradation of a few large facilities of contemporary interest, viz.., VENTURE (VECC array for Nuclear fast Timing and angUlar CorRElation studies), VEBGYOR (VECC array for Beta-Gamma spectroscopY of Radio-nuclei), GMDA (Granular charged particle Multiplicity filter Detector Array) etc. has been taken up at VECC, Kolkata which will be used in standalone mode and/or coupled mode with high resolution Clover HPGe array like VENUS (VECC array for NUclear Spectroscopy) at VECC.
A theme meeting , dedicated to the PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE of nuclear structure studies with lifetimes, transitions, moments and beta decays, has been organized to discuss physics issues, developmental aspects and relevant techniques along with the future perspectives.
Faculties, post doctoral fellows, students, interested researchers in the field are welcome to join. Registration is requested for participation in the meeting which is free of cost.
Participation will be limited to maximum 200 with researchers from the field. JRFs, SRFs and RAs, only with acceptable letter of recommendation, can participate in the meeting.
