Our projects are spread over several key areas:

AGATA - A European collaboration (currently consisting of 40 partners from over 10 countries) to build the ultimate gamma-ray spectrometer for nuclear physics applications.

ALICE - A dedicated experiment using heavy-ion collisions at the LHC (CERN, Geneva) to produce strongly-interacting matter with the highest energy-densities ever created in the laboratory.

ISOLDE Solenoidal Spectrometer - The ISOLDE Solenoidal Spectrometer is a newly constructed instrument for precision studies of inelastic scattering and transfer reactions induced by radioactive ion beams provided by the HIE-ISOLDE accelerator at CERN. The broad science programme addresses important topics in nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics.

SAGE - The SAGE (Silicon and GErmanium) spectrometer is a device designed and built by a collaboration of the University of Liverpool, the University of Jyväskylä and the STFC Daresbury Laboratory.

SAGE was designed to study physics cases where the strong competition between internal conversion and γ-ray emission limits the amount of information obtainable through independent study of the one or the other.

Past Projects - A brief summary of previous projects collaborated and researched on.
