International Workshop on Level Density and Gamma Strength
The Department of Physics at the University of Oslo hosted an International Workshop on Level Density and Gamma Strength in Oslo, May 8-12, 2017. The workshop was the sixth in a series of biannual meetings in Oslo devoted to the subject, and enjoyed its 10th anniversary. The scientific program included invited talks, selected oral contributions from submitted abstracts, and poster presentations, covering the following topics: Nuclear level density, Gamma-strength function, Phase transitions in mesoscopic systems, Applications in astrophysics and Reactor physics and other related topics. iThemba LABS was represented by Dr P Jones, Dr L Pellegri, Dr M Wiedeking, Mr C Brits, and Mr K Malatji.
PhD students Kgashane Malatji and Christiaan Brits both presented their work. The results were very well received by the audience and lively discussions took place which have already led to new experimental ideas that will be presented to the next iThemba LABS PAC.
