[LasMañanasIFCA] "Superfluidity in nuclear systems: from nuclei to neutron stars" por Nicolae Sandulescu

Start date: 28/06/2019 11:00 End date: 28/06/2019 12:15
The possibility of superfluidity in infinite nuclear matter and atomic nuclei was suggested more than 50 years ago, shortly after the BCS theory for metallic superconductivity was proposed. In the mean time BCS-type pairing became fundamental for understanding many properties of nuclei. In the past years new features of pairing correlations have emerged in relation to the unstable nuclei produced in supernova explosions as well as in the new generation of radioactive beam facilities around the world. On the other hand, in the past years the superfluidity of infinite nuclear matter became of great importance for understanding many properties of neutron stars, such as cooling, giant glitches, etc. Of special interest are the recent data on cooling of the neutron star in Cassiopeia A, which seems to provide the first direct evidence of nuclear superfluidity in nature. In this conference it will be discussed the present status of the subjects mentioned above.
