Joint AURPO and SRP Webinar

Introduction to Gamma Spectroscopy

In partnership with SRP, Professor David Joss presents techniques of gamma-ray spectroscopy / spectrometry, both of which have a broad range of applications from medical imaging to environmental monitoring. This webinar focuses on how large gamma-ray spectrometer arrays are being used to uncover to some of the outstanding questions about the structure and properties of the atomic nucleus.

Professor David Joss (University of Liverpool)

David graduated with a PhD from the University of Liverpool in 1998 for his research into nuclear superdeformation in rare-earth nuclei. He has held lectureships at Staffordshire and Keele Universities before joining the Nuclear Physics Group at STFC Daresbury Laboratory in 2001. David was awarded an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship in 2005 to investigate the structure of heavy neutron-deficient nuclei at the proton drip line. David is a Professor of Nuclear Physics at the University of Liverpool and a Fellow of the Institute of Physics.

David’s research interests focus on understanding the structure of exotic nuclei using in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy and radioactive decay correlation techniques. He has discovered 10 new isotopes at the limits of known nuclei and elucidated the excited states in more than 30 nuclei for the first time, which have revealed features related to the evolution of nuclear collectivity and structure above the N=82 shell closure.
