Frontiers in Physics (IF=3.718) and Frontiers in Astronomy e Space Sciences (IF=4.055) have recently published (Jan. 4th, 2023) an open-access special issue dedicated to nuclear physics and astrophysics in laboratory magnetized plasmas.
This issues collects 11 contributions including the idea, the physics and technology, the theoretical studies and the expected results of the PANDORA project, supported by INFN 3rd Nat. Sci. Committee. The project goal is to measure for the first time β-decays in magnetized plasmas, especially for those elements involved in the s-process nucleosynthesis; in addition, plasma opacity measurements relevant in astrophysical scenarios such as kilonovae ejecta will be possibile.
