260133 VO Nuclear astrophysics I (2009W)
Nucleosynthesis processes from the Big Bang to stars and applications in thermonuclear fusion - Nuclear Reactions in stars and applications
2.50 ECTS (2.00 SWS), SPL 26 - Physik
Vorbesprechung und allenfalls Beginn: Di 6.10.2009 15.15, Victor-Franz-Hess-Hörsaal, Währinger Straße 17, Hoftrakt, 1. Stk., 1090 Wien
Currently no class schedule is known.
Aims, contents and method of the course
Introduction into various processes of nucleosynthesis in stars, e.g. from the stages of hydrogen burning to supernova-explosions and the early phase of 'Big Bang nucleosynthesis'. One goal is a more detailed understanding of the abundance distribution of elements in our solar system. New questions will be discussed and approaches to investigate such stellar processes in the lab are presented. Basics of nuclear reactions relevant in thermonuclear fusion, e.g. as planned for the next generation fusion device ITER, are discussed and will be compared to the stellar processes.
