Deciphering nuclear phenomenology across energy scales

Organizers: G. Giacalone (Univ. Heidelberg, contact), J.-Y. Ollitrault (CEA IPhT), You Zhou (N. Bohr Institute)



The plan is to have 4 days of intense discussions among experts (both theorists and experimentalists) from the high and low-energy nuclear communities to achieve the following goals :

1. Reviewing the variety of deformation effects (static deformation versus shape fluctuations, shape coexistence, shape changes when exciting nuclei...) observed in low-energy experiments, their imprint on observable phenomena in low-energy nuclear structure and reactions, and the types of deformation that are deduced from the data (axial, non-axial, octupolarity, hexadecapolarity...).
2. Reviewing the status of the manifestations of nuclear structure at high-energy colliders, what phenomena are deduced from such data (e.g. deformations, neutron-skin...), and how nuclear structure effects are modeled in theoretical calculations.
3. Pointing out important conceptual issues centred around the question : are high-energy and low-energy experiments observing the manifestation of the same thing ?
4. Identifying information from potential new low-energy experiments that may help explain high-energy data (e.g. recent evidence of deformation in collisions of 96Zr and 96Ru nuclei), and, conversely, assessing whether the great flexibility of high-energy experiments may be used to probe phenomena difficult to access via spectroscopic experiments (e.g. the deformations of any stable odd-mass nucleus, imprint of octupole deformations...).
5. Identifying optimal choices of nuclei that, if collided at high energy, would help make progress in our understanding
of nuclear phenomenology across energy scales.
