A well known issue with concordance cosmology is the cosmological lithium problem, where models of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis indicate abundances of 7Li three to four times larger than values inferred via spectroscopic measurements of metal-poor halo stars [1]. Since the source of this discrepancy remains unclear [2], it is vital to fully understand the nuclear reactions that affect the production of 7Li during the Big Bang [3]. At the Australian National University, experimental equipment and...[Show more]
