Separator for Capture Reactions

The Separator for Capture Reactions (SECAR) will be a recoil separator at NSCL and FRIB that is optimized for measurements of low-energy capture reactions of importance for nuclear astrophysics. Measurements with SECAR will focus on capture reactions needed to understand stellar explosions, including novae, X-ray bursts, supernovae, and other extreme astrophysical environments such as the interiors of very massive stars.
