In this Physics session, Dr Laura Bortolotti, Teaching Associate in the School of Physics & Astronomy at University of Nottingham, will run an interactive talk for students on Nuclear Physics.

In this talk, you’ll heard about the study of atomic nuclei and their constituents and interactions and how the findings in nuclear physics have paved the way for diverse applications across multiple domains. These applications span nuclear power and weapons, nuclear medicine, industrial and agricultural isotopes, and radiocarbon dating in geology and archaeology and nuclear astro-physics, and they will be explored in the talk.


Speaker Profile: Dr Laura Bortolotti


Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Physics and related disciplines. Student groups as well as students and teachers joining individually are very welcome.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic in advance and questions they have. Students can also think about questions about studying at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Zoom and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices.
