The Nuclear Physics Group of Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics,
aim to evolve a national nodal centre for Nuclear Astrophysics involving experimentalists and theoreticians working around the Facility for experimental Nuclear Astrophysics (FRENA).
This is a UNIQUE research accelerator where specific physics goal has been kept in mind while deciding the machine parameters.
The facility consists of a High-Current Tandetron, which will deliver light ion (H ~350 euA and He~50 euA at 3 MV) as well as heavy ions (~2-10 puA at 3MV) and variable pulsed light ion beams of H, and He.
The group is hosting the first
SERB School on Nuclear Astrophysics
of 21 days duration consisting of lectures and hands-on activities.
