Nuclear astrophysics

Reproduces the nuclear reactions occurring in stars by hitting different types of targets with charged particle beams.

Almost all elements located in the Universe originate from the thermonuclear reactions occurring in the stars. These reactions produce energy and form the elements, from the lightest to the heaviest ones. Particles accelerators are used to understand these mechanisms reproducing fusion reactions in the laboratory.
