The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics, Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE) has two new partners in its effort to foster scientific collaboration across nuclear astrophysics at institutions around the world. Recently, memoranda of understanding (MOU) were signed with TRIUMF in Vancouver, Canada, and Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai, China.
TRIUMF, Canada's National Laboratory for Nuclear and Particle Physics in Vancouver, Canada operates one of the leading ISOL RIB facilities and collaboration will focus on joint experiments and equipment development, cross disciplinary training, and linking experiments with astrophysical models.
Shanghai Jiao Tong University is the site of the newly founded "Center for Nuclear Astrophysics (CNA)". CNA and JINA-CEE will collaborate on experimental and theoretical research in nuclear astrophysics and will cooperate on training young scientists, for example through the newly established "Young Scientist Study Group".
New JINA-CEE senior collaborators from TRIUMF are Barry Davids, Iris Dillmann, Reiner Kruecken, and Chris Ruiz, and from CNA Yang Sun, Yong-Zhong Qian, Lie-Wen Chen, Yu-Min Zhao and Chang-Bo Fu.
