We study the generic aspects of atomic nuclei. Those are given by the facts that nuclei are strongly-interacting many-body quantum objects that are formed by two types of constituents, proton and neutrons.
This leads to properties and excitation modes of atomic nuclei that can reflect more strongly one or another of these aspects.
We study the single-particle properties of nuclear excitations dominated by a single nucleon inside the nucleus.

We study the collective nuclear phenomena where many nucleons inside an atomic nucleus move in a coherent way.
(more under Nuclear Collectivity and Deformation at the start page)
We are particularly well-known for our research on nuclear phenomena that depend on the differences between protons and neutrons. We study those nuclear phenomena that exist due to the nuclear proton-neutron degree of freedom.
