Nuclear Physics – High Energy Physics
Scientists in the Nuclear Physics Department are involved with the physics program associated with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland). In particular they are participating in experimental work with the ALICE detector. One of the aims of this research is to search for evidence of a new state of matter called quark-gluon plasma (QGP).
