  1. Abstract The study of stellar burning began just over 100 years ago. Nonetheless, we do not yet have a detailed picture of the nucleosynthesis within stars and how nucleosynthesis impacts stellar structure and the remnants of stellar evolution. Achieving this understanding will require precise direct measurements of the nuclear reactions involved. This report summarizes the status of direct measurements for stellar burning, focusing on developments of the last couple of decades, and offering a prospectus of near-future developments.

  3. A new Magnetic Recoil Spectrometer (MRSt) is designed to provide time-resolved measurements of the energy spectrum of neutrons emanating from an inertial confinement fusion implosion at the National Ignition Facility. At present, time integrated parameters are being measured using the existing magnet recoil and neutron time-of-flight spectrometers. The capability of high energy resolution of 2 keV and the extension to high time resolution of about 20 ps are expected to improve our understanding of conditions required for successful fusion experiments. The layout, ion-optics, and specifications of the MRSt will be presented.
