This workshop will explore reproducing supernova neutrinosphere conditions in the laboratory using heavy ion collisions with radioactive beams. Much of the "action" in core collapse supernovae happens near the neutrinosphere. This surface of last scattering is a warm low-density gas of neutron rich matter. By studying this gas, its composition, correlations, and equation of state in the laboratory, one will be able to make better predictions for supernova neutrino spectra and nucleosynthesis. The workshop will involve heavy ion experimentalists and theorists, many-body theorists, astrophysicists, and neutrino physicists.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
