Surrey's Nuclear Physics activity combines internationally-leading research in both experimental and theoretical nuclear physics. The research focuses on experimental studies of the structure and reactions of exotic nuclei using radioactive ion beams, and the theory needed to understand the basic physical processes involved. This provides a stimulating research and training environment, which attracts visiting senior researchers to Surrey from around the world. The group's experimental and computational work takes place at forefront international facilities, making important contributions to our understanding of the new physical phenomena being revealed in the worldwide development of radioactive-beam physics.
Radiation and Medical Physics
The group has strong expertise in applied radiation physics and strong links with the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s Medical Physics Department, as well as to the Radiation Dosimetry, Nuclear Metrology and Radioactivity groups at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and industry partners. Within the University, the group is always open to collaborations, currently for example, the Advanced Technology Institute, the Ion Beam Centre, Material Science, Medical Imaging and more.
