View Resource Nuclear Physics Group

This website features the Nuclear Physics Group at the University of Birmingham's research related to understanding nuclei properties by studying the behavior of their constituents. Visitors can learn about the investigations undertaken by the five subgroups: Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions, Exotic beams studies, Laser Spectroscopy of Unstable Isotopes, Positron Emission Tomography, and Nuclear...
View Resource ALICE: A Large Ion Collider Experiment at CERN LHC

This website features the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) collaboration's aim to "study the physics of strongly interacting matter at extreme energy densities, where the formation of a new phase of matter, the quark-gluon plasma, is expected." The Public section of the website features the construction plan for the detector located at CERN, which will be optimized for heavy-ion physics....
View Resource U.S. Department of Energy: Nuclear Energy

In recent years, there has been a great deal of talk regarding alternate energy sources in the United States. While not exactly an "alternate" source of energy, there has definitely been more interest in nuclear energy and related technologies as of late. For anyone interested in such matters, the US Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy is definitely worth a visit. From the homepage,...
View Resource The National Security Archive: The Limited Test Ban Treaty

This latest electronic briefing book from the National Security Archive at George Washington University brings together some fascinating documents related to the 1963 accord outlawing nuclear testing in the atmosphere, under water, and in space. This treaty was called the Limited Test Ban Treaty (LTBT) and for decades many wondered if the nations that signed onto this document might have violated...

View Resource CERN: Celebrating 60 years of science for peace

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, as an acronym from the French), founded 60 years ago by Niels Bohr and other European visionaries, has revolutionized our understanding of the universe. With over 10,000 scientists from more than 100 countries working together to unravel the mysteries of dark matter, the early universe, and antimatter through the utilization of the world’s most...
