Nuclear Physics & RIKEN Theory Seminar

"Transport and Screening in the Magnetized Neutron Star Crusts"

Presented by Sanjay Reddy, Los Alamos National Lab

Friday, February 26, 2010, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

After a brief discussion of some generic properties of neutron star crusts and some recent observation that probe this physics, I will discuss a new mechanism by which heat is conducted in the inner crust. In strong magnetic fields, the heat carried by superfluid phonons may become important. In addition, I will show that the modification of the electron screening of the ion-ion potential at large fields can be important implications for the mechanical structure.
