News & Events

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced on December 11, 2008 that Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing, MI has been selected to design and establish the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), a cutting-edge research facility to advance understanding of rare nuclear isotopes and the evolution of the cosmos. The new facility—expected to take about a decade to design and build and to cost an estimated $550 million—will provide research opportunities for an international community of approximately 1000 university and laboratory scientists, postdoctoral associates, and graduate students.

The Fifth Argonne/INT/MSU/JINA FRIB Workshop on Bulk Nuclear Properties was held at Michigan State University from November 19 to 22, 2008. It was the fifth in a series of theory workshops related to RIA. View Talks

JINA hosted a Mini-Workshop on "Post-processing of SNe Ia Nucleosynthesis Yields" on October 5 at University of Chicago. It was a very informal workshop, where they discussed work in progress and the respective views of the problems associated with handling post-processing for particularly the conditions that obtain in SNe Ia.

NNDC has released online version of MACS & Reaction Rates calculations for the ENDF library isotopes. This would allow to calculate evaluated neutron libraries prediction for the given energy within the ENDF range (0-20 MeV). Website

The JINA Reaclib Database's first "snap shot" library V0 is now available. This public and web-based database stores thermonuclear reaction rates of relevance for explosive hydrogen and helium burning, as well as the s-processes and r-processes.
