PhD projects

Garry Tungate works on laser spectroscopy of radioactive isotopes to measure their ground state properties - size, deformation, magnetic moment and spin. This requires the production of short-lived nuclear species, their extraction from the reaction chamber and the formation of an ionic beam for interrogation by a narrow band width laser beam. This work is performed at the IGISOL Facility at the University of Jyväskyä and ISOLDE at CERN.

Dr Tungate supervises PhDs in the area of nuclear physics; his research spans the themes of:

Laser spectroscopy of radioactive ions
Nuclear breakup and nuclear molecules
Polarised heavy ion scattering and reactions
Polarised neutron scattering
Polarised deuteron scattering
