Nuclear Physics Web Sites

  • Division of Nuclear Physics (DNP) is comprised of scientists who study fundamental problems related to the nature of matter.

  • The Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Physics is the largest funding agency for Nuclear Physics.

  • The National Science Foundation also supports Nuclear Physics.

  • The Alsos Digital Library for Nuclear Issues provides a broad, balanced range of annotated references for the study of nuclear issues. This searchable collection includes books, articles, films, CD-ROMs, and web sites.

  • The Radiochemistry Society has a web site which has an excellent glossary, a "Kid's Korner" which is geared to K-12 students, and a history section on the nuclear age,

  • CERN has produced a very interest web site called The search for antimatter. You can discover what antimatter is, where it is made, and how it is already part of our lives.

  • The Sound of the Little Bang describes how scientists use particle accelerators to create matter as hot and dense as the Universe was a millionth of a second after the Big Bang.

  • A commercial site which lists "best of the web "nuclear sites.

  • Basic information that uses simple language to describe the underlying principles of atoms, isotopes and radiation.

  • A group in Sweden has put together a web site where you can "play a musical tune" using the decay properties of an isotope. It is called a "Radioactive Orchestra". You can imagine hearing a radioactive decay. They have also produced a video describing their work. The video is in Swedish but has English subtitles.

Other Science Sites

  • Science Buddies is a non-profit organization that helps students and teachers by putting them in touch with experts.

  • In 2005, the World Year of Physics 2005 brought the excitement of physics to the public and inspire a new generation of scientists. This site was timed to coincide with the centennial celebration of Albert Einstein's "miraculous year,"
