Theoretical Nuclear Physics

Nuclear physics is the study of the constituents and interactions of atomic nuclei.


Nuclear physics research at University of Idaho is focused on using mathematical and computational models of the nuclear force and/or nuclear reactions. We then test these models against experimental data measured at particle accelerator facilities around the world.


The facilities in the nuclear physics group include:

  • Computational facilities

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

We are interested in mathematically skilled students who are interested in understanding the nature of the forces that keep the constituents of the nucleus (the proton and the neutron) together in such a small space.
