Supervisor:
Department of Physics
Synopsis:

The goal of the lecture and the exercise is to learn students the basic knowledge from nuclear and particle physics. Students will improve their knowledge about the mass structure and they will see laws of microcosms, too.

Requirements:

Physical Laboratory 1,2; Experimental Physics 1,2

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Basic properties of nuclei.

2.Structure of nuclei and chart of the nuclides.

3.Binding energy.

4.Spin. Electromagnetic moments.

5.Hyperfine structure of the atomic spectra.

6.Nuclear forces and models of atomic nuclei.

7.Radioactivity. Radioactive decay chains.

8.Alpha decay. Beta decay. Gamma emission.

9.Nuclear reactions.

10.The compound nucleus hypthesis. Breit-Wigner formula.

11.Elementary theory of fission.

12.Fusion reaction.

13.Stellar nucleosynthesis. pp - chain, helium catalysed chains, CNO - chain.

14.Cosmic rays.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Basic terminology

2. Particle composition of atomic nuclei

3. Charged particle in electromagnetic field

4. Mass, charge and radius of atomic nuclei

5. Rutherford scattering

6. Hyperfine structure and spin of atomic nuclei

7. Weiszecker mass formula

8. Liquid drop model

9. Shell model

10.Alfa, beta, gamma radioactivity

11.Decay law applications
