Thomas Nilsson

Professor and Head of Department, Subatomic and Plasma Physics, Department of Physics

My research is focussed on how fundamental interactions manifest themselves in subatomic systems, in particular in nuclei with large excesses of neutrons or protons where exotic structures and properties emerge. This is done through experiments using facilities providing beams of radioactive nuclei, like FAIR/GSI in Germany and CERN-ISOLDE in Switzerland. Furthermore, I am engaged in developing such facilities and the connected instrumentation, in particular at FAIR.
