Our research is primarily focused on experimental studies into various aspects of the structure of nuclei and nuclear processes, including reactions of relevance to nuclear astrophysics.

We study the fundamental properties of atomic nuclei and the origin of elements in the cosmos by employing and developing experimental and theoretical techniques.

As well as pursuing fundamental research focussing on the key questions at the forefront of the field, we develop new techniques in nuclear technology, working closely with industrial partners.

We are strongly committed to inspiring the next generation of scientists and bringing the excitement of fundamental science to the wider public.
