Research Activities

The experimental nuclear physics group is dedicated to the studies of the nuclear shell structure evolution and the nucleon correlations in nuclei. The experimental techniques include direct reactions, in-beam gamma spectroscopy and beta-decay spectroscopy. The state-of-the-art gamma-ray detector array and charged particle detector array will be constructed at the University of Hong Kong in collaboration with RIKEN (Japan) and IPN-Orsay (France). Both arrays are portable with fully integrable capability to the detection systems at the present facility RIKEN (Japan) and in the future-upgraded accelerated-based laboratories worldwide such as NSCL/FRIB (United States) and Spiral2 (France).
