Nuclear Physics Forum

The LBNL Nuclear Physics Forum (NP Forum) is a weekly (more or less) seminar series covering topics in low-energy nuclear science, including nuclear structure, nuclear chemistry and heavy element research, applied physics and much more. The NP Forum series involves the nuclear structure group, heavy element research group and research groups from the UC Berkeley campus. NP Forums are typically scheduled for 11am on Thursdays in the Building 88 2nd floor conference room area, with refreshments (coffee + cookies) available from 10:45am.
