Division of Nuclear Physics
The Division of Nuclear Physics (DNP) is comprised of scientists and educators who study fundamental problems related to the nature of matter. Nuclear scientists probe the properties of nuclei and nuclear matter and the interactions of their ultimate constituents — quarks and gluons. They also address interdisciplinary questions: the basis of fundamental symmetries in nature, the first moments of the universe, the origin of the elements, education, and the application of nuclei and nuclear techniques to meet societal needs including medical diagnoses and treatment, energy, advanced materials, and Homeland Security. DNP interests have significant overlap with other APS Divisions, Topical Groups and Forums.
News & Announcements
The 2015 DNP Election resulted in the following candidates being elected: David J. Dean, ORNL (Vice Chair), Benjamin F. Gibson (Secretary/Treasurer), Gail E. Dodge, Jorge Piekarewicz and Raju Venugopalan (Member-at-Large).
DNP will offer a limited number of travel grants to support the attendance of graduate students at the APS April Meeting 2016.
The Nuclear Science Advisory Committee (NSAC) has released their 2015 Long Range Plan for Nuclear Science.
