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
