Centre for Nuclear and Radiation Physics
Welcome to the home page for the Centre for Nuclear and Radiation Physics (CNRP)
CNRP is a research centre of the Department of Physics at the University of Surrey. The Centre brings together expertise in both pure and applied nuclear physics, detector physics, and medical imaging, providing a unique research and teaching capability.

Surrey's Nuclear Physics activity is unique in the UK in combining internationally-leading research in both experimental and theoretical nuclear physics, and is the largest nuclear physics group in the UK. This provides a stimulating research and training environment which attracts visiting senior researchers from around the world to Surrey. In recognition of these qualities, the centre is an EU-funded Marie Curie Training Site for nuclear physics research. The Centre's experimental and computational work takes place at leading national and international facilities, making important contributions to our understanding of the new physical phenomena being revealed in the worldwide development of radioactive-beam physics.
Radiation and Medical Physics research covers many areas of medical physics, radiation imaging techniques, fundamental studies of semiconductor radiation detectors and detector materials. Medical Physics research is strongly supported by the Department's internationally acclaimed MSc programme in Medical Physics, with extensive research links to regional hospitals and institutes in the South East of England. Radiation Imaging and Detector Physics research is supported by the departments extensive range of radiation laboratories, recently re-equipped with a £1M SRIF investment.
MSc and Research Opportunities
CNRP staff support the department's 3 MSc courses in Medical Physics, Radiation and Environmental Protection, and Radiation Detection and Instrumentation. You can obtain more information and application procedures about our MSc courses. You can also find out more about PhD and research opportunities within CNRP.
