Description

Our overall objective is to address two of the leading issues of nuclear physics: the nature of nuclear matter, and the origin of the chemical elements.

Our work involves exploring, revealing and explaining nuclear phenomena under extreme conditions. Vital to our programme is the development and testing of theoretical models of nuclear reactions and nuclear structure. The principal experimental thrust is to exploit the exceptional opportunities provided by the new generation of radioactive-beam facilities, pushing back the boundaries of neutron number, and gaining access to new structural features.

The research is thus strongly aligned with the current UK nuclear physics strategy.
