Course Contents

Modern subatomic physics is a broad and active field of research. It encompasses issues spanning from photo-induced reactions to the question of the existence of the quark-gluon plasma. In order to illustrate the models and nuclear reactions which are used in today's subatomic research we follow a few current projects with connection to the research at the divisions of nuclear physics and high-energy physics in Lund from the planning stage, via the experiment and data analysis to the final interpretation of the result.
