Nuclei are at the core of everything in day to day life. Understanding how they work and interact is a fundamental science vital to applications in the real world as well as pure research.

Image of the Week: Dalitz plots – We really like this image, it looks like Bane from Batman!
All our evidence for dark matter is based on indirect observations. That isn’t enough, we need direct detection.
A classic way to think of an atomic nucleus is as a sphere; but this isn’t quite right. Many are deformed, and are stranger than you think.
It’s not easy making a discovery. Sometimes you need a worldwide effort to know just where to look.
Looking at some of the most downloaded content across the JPhys series of journals.
As we move into the new year, I take a look back at some of the biggest science stories that captured our interest in 2015.
It’s been a busy, exciting, and fantastically successful year for the JPhys+ blog and Journal of Physics series and we’re all looking forward to what the new year will bring.
Celebrate a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with some beautiful festive physics artwork.
“In a nutshell, we live in exciting times where theory and experiment are working hand in hand in particle physics towards revealing the answers to the deep and pressing questions left unanswered by the Standard Model.”
That’s a lot of electron volts.
Not directly perhaps, but did it influence the final hammer blow 65 million years ago?
Errors are everywhere, and everything is uncertain. We must understand and estimate how these affect physics, but how do we do it best?
It’s not every day that scientists get to rub shoulders with the world of film stars and pop icons like Russell Crowe and Christina Aguilera.
Nuclei that barely hold together and stretch our understanding of nuclear matter? Go on then.
Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B McDonald win for their work in neutrino oscillations. Pure physics, but there could be a bright future ahead.
Just one of the things we’re doing to make sure great science can get to the right people.
