Astrophysical phenomena are very useful sites for nuclear physics to examine various nuclear models. In this workshop, we focus on nuclear physics relating to astrophysical phenomena such as neutron star mergers and supernovae to study nuclear fission. Among many topics, nuclear fission in nucleosynthesis have been drawing increasing attention again, since neutron star mergers was observed using from radio to gamma-ray wavelengths and with gravitational waves, though the idea of fission cycle in r-process has long history. The purpose of this workshop is to share latest research activities on nuclear physics relating to nucleosynthesis, and to provide an opportunity to discuss what gives the biggest impact on fission recycling process in r-process nucleosynthesis. For precise evaluation of the contribution of nuclear fission in r-process nucleosynthesis, we should investigate the nuclear properties of neutron-rich nuclei and superheavy elements (SHE) in addition to development of nuclear fission models including level densities and nuclear structures.
The key topics of this workshop is as follows.
  • Nuclear fission fragment mass distribution (FFMD)
  • Total kinetic energy (TKE) of fission fragments
  • Nuclear structure of superheavy elements
  • Mass formula
  • Decay heat
  • Nuclear Equation of State of nuclear matter
  • Impact of quantum effects in nucleosynthesis
