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.

  • A video about how scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory discovered new elements from hydrogen bomb debris in 1951. The team included Nobel Prize winner Glenn Seaborg and famed element hunter Albert Ghiorso. LBNL scientist Claude Lyneis uploaded this video to YouTube.

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,"
