Nuclear Physics Group

This is an IOP special interest group, which is a community of IOP members focused on a particular discipline, application or area of interest. 

Special interest groups allow members to connect and share knowledge and ideas. The IOP funds groups to deliver a range of activities including events, prizes and bursaries. All of our groups are driven by members.  

About the group

As a special interest, member-driven group, we are interested in supporting:

  • promising early physics careers
  • nuclear physics researchers in industry
  • nuclear physics researchers in universities
  • students who are attending nuclear physics events
  • Institute members with an interest in nuclear physics

What the group does

We promote activities for the nuclear physics community including:

  • outreach
  • resources for teachers
  • talks to the general public
  • meetings and conferences
