A two-day workshop to discuss all activities related to gamma-gamma physics in the SFB 1044 was held on February 2-3, 2017. An outline of the current status was presented by a person actively involved in each the project. This was followed by an indepth discussion of the next steps.
Workshop: "Neutron skins of nuclei"
This two-week program held in Mainz gathered the stakeholders interested in the determination of the neutron skins of nuclei (e.g., Ca and Pb) and their impact on the density dependence of the symmetry energy.
Workshop: "New vistas in low-energy precision Physics (LEPP)"
The LEPP workshop was held to discuss the physics opportunities at MESA, especially the opportunities given at the internal target experiment MAGIX.
Funding of the CRC 1044 extended
The German Research Foundation (DFG) will continue its funding of the CRC 1044 for another four years by making approximately EUR 12.5 million available from 1st January 2016 for research of fundamental aspects of the subatomic world.
