Event details

Nuclear Physics Masterclass

Join Kate Womack and Dr. Christian Diget to discover the origins of the elements and find out about the roles of different isotopes in different stellar processes. Kate is a PhD student in nuclear astrophysics at the University of Hull. In the webinar, she will discuss the stellar origins of the chemical elements and explain which astrophysical events create each element in the periodic table. Christian is a physics lecturer and an experimental nuclear physicist at the University of York. He studies the nuclear reactions that take place in exploding stars, which he will describe in more detail in the webinar.

This webinar can be attended independently but is also part of a Nuclear Physics Masterclass. Find out more and register for the full masterclass at
