Nuclear physics

The “Nuclear Physics” cluster is composed of 3 scientific teams that devote their research to the study of fundamental physics in the field of subatomic physics. Its research teams study the properties of the interactions acting in atomic nuclei in order to understand their properties, in the lab as well as in astrophysical sites.

Nuclear dynamics & thermodynamics

The study of collisions between heavy ions allows the study of the equation of state of nuclear matter, and to explain the explosions of massive stars in supernovae.

Theoretical physics & phenomenology

The Laboratory is expert in the microscopic modeling of the dense matter present in astrophysical phenomena concerning compact stars (proto-neutron stars and neutron stars,…).

Nuclear structure

Studies of nuclei far from the beta stability line, with significant asymmetry between the number of protons and the number of neutrons (“exotic” nuclei) help in the development of models of nuclear structure and the exploration of new phenomena, such as “haloes” and correlations between valence neutrons.
