Seminar programme: Autumn - Winter 2018


The Surrey Nuclear Physics Group (NPG) holds regular seminars in experimental, 

theoretical and applied nuclear physics. Future seminars and other research activities

are displayed here. This information can also usually be found at the Departmental

web pages and, in some cases, links to the slides of the speakers are available.

Links to recent seminars, workshops and schools are also available from the Recent

Events link in the sidebar - or from here.


Seminar venue:

Seminars usually take place at the University of Surrey. The regular venue is the Physics

Department seminar room 30BB03. Any changes of location will be notified here. A map

of the Surrey campus is also available here.


Forthcoming Conferences and Schools

The next European Conference on Few-Body Problems in Physics (EFB24) will be held

at the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom, from 2 to 6 September 2019.  

This will be the 24th edition of this conference series which has previously taken place

in Aarhus (2016), Krakow (2013), Salamanca (2010) and Pisa (2007).

24th European Conference on Few-Body Problems in Physics (EFB24)


The UK Nuclear Physics Graduate School is running in 2018. Details can be found

here. It is mainly aimed at PhD students but is also open to others who may be

interested. Modules and registration links can be found here.

Tuesday 16th October 2018 at 14.00 in Room 30BB03

Philip Adsley (Orsay, France)
Probing clustering in light nuclei with the K600 magnetic spectrograph

Alpha-particle clustering in nuclei has been a focus of much research over the past 20

years. However, theoretical development predicting various exotic shapes within nuclei

are not always matched by complete nuclear spectroscopy of the nuclear systems of


Recent results from the K600 magnetic spectrograph in South Africa will be presented.

These results form part of an on-going systematic programme studying clustering in light-

and medium-mass nuclei. In particular, the experimental spectrum of Si-28, a nucleus

predicted to have a large number of cluster structures will be discussed, and a developing

focus on dipole excitations as a probe of clustering will be introduced.


Wednesday 31st October and Thursday 1st November 2018

7th UK Theory meeting: University of Manchester. Program is available here
