Nuclear and Particle Physics

Physicists study the fundamental properties of nature. Nuclear and Particle Physics studies natures at the smallest distance scales, where quantum mechanics is married to special relativity. Our group at Temple carries out experimental and theoretical investigations covering a variety of regimes and techniques.
