ATOMIC AND NUCLEAR PHYSICS
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students explore atomic, nuclear, and sub-nuclear structures, radiation physics and nuclear energy. Students develop their experimental and computational skills with a range of laboratory experiments. This subject is one of four such subjects at third year level that together constitute the Physics major stream. This stream is an excellent preparation for a career in research or education in the physical sciences and also for honours and post-graduate research studies in Physics.
