1st International Workshop on Quasi-free Scattering
with Radioactive Ion Beams: QFS-RB 08
Held at ECT* Trento, April 7-11, 2008
The availability of high-energy (few hundred MeV/u) radioactive beams offer the unique possibility to utilize the quasi-free scattering process in inverse kinematics to investigate nuclear properties with unstable short-lived nuclei. This technique has a large research potential including physics fields such as the single-particle structure of neutron-proton asymmetric nuclei, nucleon-nucleon correlations, and nuclear in-medium effects. These programs have been proposed at several experimental facilities like R3B (Reactions with Relativistic Radioactive Beams), EXL (EXotic nuclei studied in Light-ion induced reactions), and ELISe (ELectron-Ion Scattering in a Storage Ring (eA collider)) at the FAIR facility at GSI Darmstadt, Germany, as well as at the RIBF facility at RIKEN, Japan and the NSCL in the US.
The topics of the workshop are the following:
• quasi-free scattering reactions with hadron and electron probes
An important aspect of the workshop is to bring together the experts of the field of quasi-free scattering having used proton and electron accelerators with the radioactive-beam community aiming at applying these techniques to radioactive beams. The wish is to learn from the large experience gained in the past both in theoretical as well as experimental aspects. Clearly, the development of the reaction theory is of major importance for the success of the planned programmes.
The workshop will be organized jointly by theorists and experimentalists organized in the EURONS projects funded by the 6th framework programme of the European Community. The participating EU projects are the theory network TNET, and the joint research proposals RHIB and EXL.
