报告题目：New directions in hypernuclear physics: with heavy io beams, nuclear emulsions and machine learning
Studies of hypernuclei, subatomic bound systems with strange quark, have been contributing for understanding the fundamental baryonic interactions as well as the nature of dense nuclear matters. Hypernuclei have already been studied for almost seven decades in reactions with cosmic-rays and with meson- and electron-beams. In recent years, hypernuclei are also studied in experiments employing energetic heavy ion beams, and some of these experiments have revealed unexpected results on three-body hypernuclear states, i.e., shorter lifetime and larger binding energy of the lightest hypernucleus, the hypertriton, than those formerly determined. The result of the HypHI experiment also showed the indication of an unprecedented bound state with a Lambda hyperon with two neutrons. These results have initiated several ongoing experimental programs all over the world to study these three-body hypernuclear states precisely. We are studying those light hypernuclear states by employing different approaches from the other experiments . We employ heavy ion beams on fixed nuclear targets to produce hypernuclei measured by the WASA detector and the Fragment separator FRS at GSI in Germany in order to determine their lifetime precisely. The first experiment with the WASA and FRS (the WASA-FRS HypHI experiment) has been conducted in March 2022. We also analyze the entire volume of the nuclear emulsion irradiated by kaon beams in the J-PARC E07 experiment in order to measure their binding energies at the world best precision. We are using Machine Learning techniques for the both projects. In the seminar, these projects will be discussed on details, and our perspective with heavy ion beams at HIAF in China and at FAIR in Germany and with nuclear emulsions + machine learning will also be discussed.
