Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics Curriculum

 

The Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics Curriculum (see the Study Plan reported below) is devoted to the study, from a theoretical and experimental point of view, of the physics of fundamental interactions of elementary particles and nuclei.

Students will learn about all the aspects of a Nuclear and Sub-Nuclear Physics experiment; starting from a real research physics case, going through the study of the single experimental devices and the project  and construction of the whole apparatus, often done by using complex Montecarlo simulations, concluding with  tests and calibration procedure, the data taking campaign and the following analysis. The ultimate aim will be a new experimental result connected with the studied physic case.

The module also aims to teach about different theoretical aspects of the physics, thus the fundamental interactions between elementary particles and the Standard model as well as different theoretical models of structure and dynamics of the nuclear matter will be also among the main topics.

All the subject will be faced in different courses, including also laboratory, together with seminars of researchers working on the field and possible collaborations abroad in the framework of ERASMUS mobility program.

Students’ progress will be tested by individual oral and written exams, and with the elaboration of the Master memory.

At the end of the module students have to show the acquired capabilities and knowledge in the field of Nuclear and Sub-Nuclear Physics  by applying them in a real case. They have to be able to participate in an active way to the planning and realization of new experiment  and devices, to use all the software instruments for this purpose, to manage and analyze the big amount of experimental data, in order to find an original experimental results.
