NuStAR - NUclear STructure, Astrophysics and Reactions


The NUSTAR collaboration is devoted to the study of Nuclear Structure, Astrophysics, and Reactions. More than 700 scientists from more than 170 participating institutes worldwide form the NUSTAR community. They all concentrate on the development and realization of new instrumentation and methods for future experiments at the upcoming FAIR facility. The research interest of the NUSTAR collaboration is focused on the use of beams of radioactive species separated and identified by the Superconducting FRagment Separator (Super-FRS), which is the central element of all NUSTAR experiments. This web page gives an overview of the NUSTAR@FAIR, and contribution of INDIA in this mega project. The current experimental program of NUSTAR at GSI Darmstadt and further information can be found here



NUSTAR encompasses all experiments that will be benefiting from the unique possibilities opened up through the Super-FRS, which will deliver an unprecedented range of radioactive ion beams (RIBs). The experiments will exploit beams of different energies and characteristics at three branches; the high-energy branch utilizes the RIBs at relativistic energies (300-1500 MeV/u) as created in the production process, the low-energy branch aims at using beams in the range of 0-300 MeV/u, whereas the ring branch will exploit cooled and stored beams in the storage ring NESR. These projects are gathered within the NUSTAR collaboration and share development and other synergies across the projects.
