Nuclear Physics is a unique branch of physics where experimental progress is driven by compelling theoretical questions and theoretical progress is driven by experimental discovery. Thus, it has remained one of the most rewarding disciplines of research in modern physics. Nuclear Physics spans structures ranging in sizes from a fermi (hadrons), a few fermis (nuclei), a few kilometers (neutron stars) to enormous dimensions of supernovae and early universe.

At VECC, we study the behavior of nuclei as they collide with other nuclei at energies varying from very low to very high. We explore the structure of the strongly interacting matter at a density of a few times the density of nuclei and a temperatures of several hundreds of MeV (1 MeV is about 1010 degree K). Nuclei having extreme N/Z ratios are predicted to exist and we intend to produce them and study them. We expect to see very unusual shapes and dimensions of nuclei, especially as they spin more rapidly, in years to come. Man has added more than 24 new elements in the periodic table which nature provides. Production and study of super-heavy elements is another important activity, which interests us. We are engaged in understanding the structure of nuclei, dynamics of nuclear reactions, physics of relativistic heavy ion collisions and quark gluon plasma, study of material science using accelerators.
