Nuclear Physics

About the Nuclear Physics group

Nuclear physics deals with the properties of nuclei and how their properties may be understood in terms of the interactions between the constituents. The basic questions facing nuclear physics today range over the extremes of physical phenomena from the microscopic to the macroscopic. Thus the properties of nuclei have their origins in the basic interactions of elementary particles, quarks and gluons, while the macroscopic evolution of the universe is directly related to the interactions between nuclei.

The Edinburgh Nuclear Physics Group has a uniquely diverse range of interests, conducting research into the building blocks of Nature in a wide range of extreme environments. The properties of nuclei have their origins in the basic interactions of elementary particles, quarks and gluons, while the macroscopic evolution of stars and galaxies is directly related to the interactions between nuclei. Direct searches for Dark Matter are seeking to identify the dominant contribution to mass at the galactic and larger scales.
