Nuclear astrophysics at the Felsenkeller underground laboratory in Dresden

Nuclear astrophysics aims to understand the production of the chemical elements in the universe. The field has strong links to cosmology, for example in Big Bang nucleosynthesis and the study of neutron star precursors. The talk will review the progress of the Felsenkeller shallow-underground ion accelerator lab in Dresden, Germany. Several nuclear reactions of astrophysical relevance are under study in this low-background setting. In addition, the talk will present a new EU-supported Starting Community of research infrastructures for nuclear astrophysics, ChETEC-INFRA. ChETEC-INFRA networks and provides access to a diverse set of related infrastructures in EU and associated countries.
