Seminar programme: Winter - Spring 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. Registration for courses is via the eventbrite website:

Electromagnetic Nuclear Response Functions
Atomic nuclei drive the synthesis of chemical elements, serve as star fuel and as laboratories

to test fundamental interactions and the Standard Model.  Predictions of nuclear properties

that start from forces among nucleons and their interactions with external probes as described

by chiral effective field theory are arguably the doorway to a solid connection between

observations and the underlying fundamental theory of quantum chromo-dynamics.

Today, thanks to advances in many-body theory and high performance computing, we can

calculate nuclear properties for increasingly large systems and estimate theoretical uncertainties.

Nuclear response functions are key observables to study the nuclear dynamics. As such they

have been subject of intensive studies. I will present recent highlights, that portrait the role of

electromagnetic responses in tackling contemporary issues, such as the proton-radius puzzle

and the neutron-skin thickness.


Seminar Organiser:

The seminar organiser is Dr Natasha Timofeyuk
