Nuclear Physics

Modern nuclear physics spans a broad range of topics and applications. It tries to answer fundamental questions about the origin of the universe and the fate of stars. At the same time it impacts every day life through applications in nuclear energy, nuclear medicine and nuclear security. Most of the nuclear science in the Department of Physics and Astronomy is conducted at the Cyclotron Institute and the Nuclear Solutions Institute in collaboration with colleagues from nuclear chemistry, nuclear engineering and other related fields. The Cyclotron Institute operates two cyclotron accelerators on campus which permit the experimental study of nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics, and for precision measurements of fundamental symmetries. In addition, members of the nuclear physics group are involved in experiments at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and other accelerator facilities around the world. A strong program in theoretical nuclear physics complements the experimental efforts.
