In April this year, my group joined the Center of Excellence CENTAUR funded by National Nuclear Security Administration at Texas A&M. Through the center, we will continue our work with the HYPERION array at the Texas A&M cyclotron to investigate the statistical properties of rare-earth nuclei. Such measurements provide constraints for the neutron capture cross sections for nuclear astrophysics (s- and r-processes) and for applications (reactor physics, stockpile stewardship, national security).
