Current Research

  • Experimental Nuclear and Particle Physics Group: Experimental Nuclear Physics

    • 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).  

 

Research Interest

  • Experimental nuclear physics for the studies of the nucleon correlations and the nuclear shell structure evolution
