Our research

The members of the Nuclear Physics group at The University of Manchester pursue a range of research interests, including:

Laser spectroscopy of radioactive isotopes
Laser spectroscopy of radioactive isotopes
Laser spectroscopy provides a fast and efficient technique for atomic hyperfine structure and isotope shift measurements.
Spectroscopy of exotic nuclei: exploring the changing shell structure
Single-particle structure and nucleon-transfer reactions
The single-particle character and the associated shell structure of nuclei is the foundation of much of our understanding of nuclear physics.
Institutes and research centres
Fission fragment spectroscopy
Spontaneous fission is currently the best method available for the production of medium-mass, very neutron-rich nuclei.
Exposing subtle details of the nuclear force through lifetime measurements
Exposing subtle details of the nuclear force through lifetime measurements
The lifetime of a nuclear state is a fundamental observable which gives a direct probe of the nuclear force.
