PoS(NIC-IX)179 Significant progress in studies of core collapse supernovae, thermonuclear supernovae, X-ray bursts, novae, and other astrophysical phenomena require intense beams of a wide range of unsta- ble nuclei. While some such beams are currently available and being used for important studies in nuclear astrophysics, the beams are often insufficient in intensity, purity, or available isotopes. It is anticipated that a next-generation radioactive beam facility will be built in the U.S. in the next decade to address these shortcomings, and a Working Group has been established to develop and promote nuclear astrophysics research at this new facility. Many of the topics addressed by the Working Group are relevant for the RIKEN RI Beam Factory, the planned GSI-Fair facility, and other advanced radioactive beam facilities around the world.
