History of Nuclear & Particle Physics

Time line of the discoveries and the interests

- The goal of elementary particle physics
- To unify different scales of interactions (forces)
- To identify fundamental particles in nature and to investigate the ultimate law of motion
- To find the origin of universe, etc

- The goal of nuclear physics
- To understand finite atomic nuclei from nucleon properties and forces
- To know the properties of stable materials (“our everyday life”)

- Elementary particle physics
- More fundamental investigation in physical science

- Nuclear physics
- Application of modern physics including elementary particle physics

Elementary particle & nuclear physics are closely related historically.

- Hadron Structure
- The structure of nucleon and modeling

- Hadron Spectroscopy
- Glueballs, hybrids, multi-quark states (pentaquark)

- Heavy Ion Physics
- Quark-gluon plasma, and other new phase of matters

- Nuclear Astrophysics
- Star formation, super novae

- Applications
- Archeology, environmental science, nuclear medicine, health physics, nuclear engineering
