High Energy Nuclear Physics – Theoretical Research

Research in nuclear physics has a long and storied tradition at Purdue University, beginning in 1937, when one of the first cyclotrons in the United States was built by members of the Physics Department. Understanding the strong force, responsible for the binding of atomic nuclei, is a major goal of the field. This can be accomplished by studying properties of nuclear systems, both theoretically and experimentally, over a wide range of excitation energies and densities, covering many different types of nuclear phenomena, from fission to the creation of the quark-gluon plasma.
