Thesis Projects

Available projects for senior students

update 01.06.2017: Several research projects are now available for next academic year 2017-18.

The following thematic directions are avaiable; however, you are advised to fill in this application. If you are a first or second year student please see how you can work on a short-term research project with our group. For most details, see our group’s website

[fundamental nuclear physics]

  • Exotic isotopes structure (focus on lifetimes, E/M moments)
  • Nuclear astrophysics: exploring the p-process
  • Nuclear data
  • Critical symmetries in excited nuclei

[Detector & accelerator physics]

  • Upgrade and development of new experimental contrivances for nuclear studies
  • Simulations of radiation detector setups (using specialized codes, such as MCNP and GEANT4)
  • Simulations of beam line optics Online-code development

[Putting radiation to work]

  • Synchrotron X-ray radiation for materials, environmental and geochemical studies (in collab w/ the Department of Mineralogy , read more)
  • Post-Chernobyl and Fukushima radioactivity monitoring
  • Monitoring and analyzing volcanic activity (in collab w/ the Department of Physical Oceanography)

[Education & outreach]

  • Mobile app development for nuclear data
  • Building interactive nuclear physics simulations for educational purposes
  • Web development of Nuclear Physics history
