Department of Physics, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK
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.
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).
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:
The Nuclear Reaction Theory course will run at Surrey, on 18-20 of April. It will
include lectures, tutorials and hands-on computing sessions.

Dense nuclear and quark matter in neutron stars
The interior of a neutron star contains ultra-dense matter governed by the strong
interaction and thus serves as a laboratory for fundamental physics. I will review
some astrophysical observations and how they can be related to microscopic physics,
including superfluidity and superconductivity of nuclear and quark matter. I will also
present some recent results about magnetic flux tubes in multi-component systems
such as neutron/proton matter and three-flavor quark matter and discuss possible
The seminar organiser is Dr Natasha Timofeyuk
