"Neutron stars: laboratories for fundamental physics", Dr Andreas Schmitt
Time & Location
About the Event
Neutron stars are ultra-dense. Matter in their interior is very different from ordinary matter on earth or even from ordinary stellar matter. In the quest to understand properties of neutron stars we are pushing the boundaries of our knowledge of nuclear and particle physics. In this talk, I will give an introduction to dense matter inside neutron stars and discuss how researchers attempt to "look inside" the star, i.e., how astrophysical observations can be connected with microscopic and fundamental properties of matter.
