«Fission at FUSTIPEN II: recent observables and their modeling»


May 3-4, 2016, GANIL, Caen, France


First circular         

In the last 20 years, important progress has been brought about in the experimental observables revealing the fission properties. In particular, new experimental techniques, in part based on the inverse kinematics, allow measuring over a large number of fissioning nuclei, the proton and neutron fragment distributions at scission, as the total kinetic energy properties of the fragments.

On the other hand, the intensive use of the surrogate method for the determination of the fission cross section reveals unexpected behavior of the compound nucleus with respect to its fission-decay channel, seeming to be independent of the angular momentum. These new generation observables form a very challenging set of data to benchmark the theoretical calculations.


The goal of the FUSTIPEN topical meeting on “Fission at FUSTIPEN II: recent observables and their modeling” is to bring together a diversity of researchers, both theorists and experimentalists, to discuss some of the recent advances on the fission process and in particular the fission fragment description, the fission barriers and the fission probability. The workshop will include talks on recent theoretical developments in the field and on related experimental studies.


Besides a series of relatively-short daily talks centered on a theme, there will be adequate Q&A time after talks and during a daily "wrap-up" discussion session.
