Abstract To truly understand how elements are created in the universe via the astrophysical r process, accurate nuclear data are required. Historically, the isotopes involved in the r process have been difficult to access for study, but the development of new facilities and measurement techniques have put many of the r-process isotopes within reach. This paper will discuss the new CARIBU facility at Argonne National Laboratory and two pieces of experimental equipment, the Beta-decay Paul Trap and the Canadian Penning Trap, that will dramatically increase the nuclear data available for models of the astrophysical r process.
