NucAR: Nuclear Astrophysics at Rings

Heavy-ion storage rings can be employed for nuclear astrophysics studies. Over the last two decades the experimental storage ring ESR at GSI has played a central role for such investigations. Experimental possibilities will be extended with the currently ongoing commissioning of the low-energy storage ring CRYRING, which is located downstream of the ESR. Further possibilities for experiments are the Chinese Storage Ring in Lanzhou, the Rare RI-Ring at RIKEN, Japan and possibly a storage ring at ISOLDE. The idea of this collaboration is to combine resources, create synergies and coherently present the latest developments concerning the experimental determination of nuclear properties with astrophysical motivation at storage rings.
