Radioactive ion beams at FAIR-NuSTAR

Challenges and advantages of high-energy exotic beams


The future FAIR facility will open up an unprecedented range of exotic nuclear beams in the energy interval between 0–1.5 GeV/u produced by the Super-FRS. The envisaged experimental programme with radioactive beams, being prepared within the NuSTAR collaboration, will cover most aspects of contemporary physics within nuclear structure, astrophysics and reactions. An overview of this programme is given, with emphasis on high-energy reactions.
