Physics of Atomic Nuclei (PAN) is an outreach program at the Nuclear Science Laboratory (NSL) at University of Notre Dame. It is run by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) and either NSL faculty and staff. We welcome students who have completed at least one year of high school and science teachers (primarily high school physics or chemistry, though others have found the program useful). The program introduces participants to the fundamentals of the extremely small domain of atomic nuclei and its connection to the extremely large domain of astrophysics and cosmology.
