Research Projects for Students

Available research projects for junior and senior students

update 14.05.2018: We have new projects available for the next academic year 2018-2019. Visit our our group’s website.

If you are interested in what we do and want to join us, please fill in this application.

First- or second-year students are more than welcome to join us: see how you can work on a short-term research project with our group. Also, if you are into coding (python, R, C/C++, bash) we have plenty of projects you can help.

For detailed descriptions of available projects, navigate here: NuSTRAP Group

We focus on:

[fundamental nuclear physics]

  • Structure of exotic isotopes (measurements of lifetimes, E/M moments)
  • Nuclear astrophysics: exploring the p-process
  • Nuclear data (emphasis on trends of nuclear moments, radii and masses)
  • Testing critical symmetries in nuclei

[Detector & accelerator physics]

  • Upgrade and development of new experimental contrivances for nuclear studies
  • Elecrtronic units for data handling and acquisition
  • Simulations of radiation detector setups (using specialized codes, such as MCNP and GEANT4)

[Radiation for the environment]

  • Synchrotron X-ray radiation for materials, environmental and geochemical studies
  • Assessing Chernobyl and Fukushima impact on Greek land and water
  • Monitoring and analyzing volcanic activity

[Education, Science Communication and Outreach]

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