Our current interests and activities Reaction mechanisms: 1) Elastic scattering and microscopic calculations of optical potentials. 2) Breakup and transfer of weakly bound nuclei. 3) One and two neutron halo systems. 4) Unbound nuclei studied via transfer and fragmentation. Isospin Dynamics in Reactions with Exotic Beams: 1) Isospin dynamics in low energy dissipative collisions 2) Isospin in Nuclear fragmentation. Finite Nuclear Systems in Brueckner Theory: 1) BHF calculations of asymmetric and polarized matter. 2) Construction of the energy functional. 3) Ground states and excitations of finite nuclei. 4) Neutron star crust. Structure and collective modes: 1) Study of the pairing correlations in low-density nuclear systems. 2) Microscopic estimate of inelastic excitation to the low-lying continuum dipole strength via microscopic continuum RPA calculations. 3) Study of isospin symmetry in low- and high-spin states in medium-mass N=Z nuclei up to 100Sn. Study of the interplay of T=0 and T=1 pairing. 4) Study of nuclear structure with algebraic models.
Can a good percentage of our theoretical work be considered unrelated to experiments ? Is all experimental work well oriented? Reaction theory K є Structure theory K є Experiments M є
We intend to build up an efficient theory network to link Reaction Mechanism studies with Structure studies to support, “confort” and orientate experimental activities.We intend to build up an efficient theory network to link Reaction Mechanism studies with Structure studies to support, “confort” and orientate experimental activities. We hope to attract some of the other italian nuclear structure groups in order to have a wider range of competences.We hope to attract some of the other italian nuclear structure groups in order to have a wider range of competences. In Pisa there is no experimental activity in Nuclear Physics while in Legnaro there is no theory group.In Pisa there is no experimental activity in Nuclear Physics while in Legnaro there is no theory group.
How to make our field more efficient? Reorganization Up from the bottom approach : thesis jointly supervised by a theoretician and an experimentalist. Students will be better educated, thesis will be more ‘readeable’, we will be forced to find not too technical problems, relationships theoretician- experimentalists will improve: ie G. Blanchon thesis COTUTELA Y. Blumenfeld & N. Orr. Mobility will automatically be implemented.
