Scientific Frontier Series 16:
Exploring the Origin of the Elements - RIKEN RI Beam factory

Outline

The RIKEN RI Beam factory, the world's leading accelerator facility is taken up this time. RIBF can accelerate all the elements from hydrogen to uranium up to 70% of the speed of light, and generate about 4000 types of unstable atomic nuclei (RI) as a beam of the world's most powerful ion beam. Research which investigates a nuclear structure and reaction, exploring the origin of the elements, and large-scale experiment facility are introduced by a dynamic images and graphics.
