Experimental Nuclear & Particle Physics

Experimental nuclear physics covers a broad range of topics: low-energy experiments for nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, and applied nuclear physics; medium-energy experiments to study the structure of the nucleon (protons and neutrons) and quark dynamics of bound states; and experiments with relativistic heavy ions to study nuclear matter under extreme conditions. The experimental nuclear physics group at Ohio University is involved in a broad range of programs in these areas at facilities around the world, seeking answers that are at the forefront of the quest to understand the structure of matter and the fundamental forces of nature.
