Nuclear Physics

Lund University

NUclear STructure, Astrophysics and Reactions (NUSTAR)

The nuclear structure, astrophysics and reactions groups in Lund are responsible for an internationally competitive line of research by exploiting existing stable and radioactive ion-beam facilities, in particular the

- GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH and

- the REX-ISOLDE facility at CERN

For the majority of our research activities, high-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy of nuclei far from the line of stability is the entry point to extend and refine existing knowledge on nuclear structure and, subsequently, astrophysical processes relevant for the creation of heavy elements. Thereby, we enjoy a fruitful collaboration with our theoretical colleagues at the Division of Mathematical Physics.

Our research lines are paralleled by preparing key instrumentation for the NUSTAR pillar of the upcoming Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) as well as - via the CATE project - infrastructure for the planned European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund.
