Department of Physics and Astronomy

Degree projects in Nuclear Physics

At the Division of Nuclear Physics, there are suitable degree projects at Bachelor and Master level in experimental and theoretical hadron physics and experimental nuclear structure physics.

Most projects in hadron physics are associated with various experiments, PANDA at FAIR outside Darmstadt in Germany, WASA at Forschungszentrum Juelich in Germany, KLOE at Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati in Italy and BES3 in Beijing, China. The experiments are at different phases, from regular data collection to planning and buildup phase. This means that there is the possibility of degree projects of different types, both of theoretical and of more technical nature. The latter includes, among other things, simulations for experiment preparation, data analysis and instrumentation.

The nuclear structure experiments are performed at the accelerator laboratories GSI in Germany, LNL-INFN in Italy, GANIL in France and JYFL in Finland. Degree projects are offered in the areas of detector physics (AGATA, BELOW), as well as in Monte Carlo simulations and data analysis.
