Nuklir Indonesia

"Semakin Kita fokus pada impian kita. Semakin cepat kita mencapai impian itu.

Fokus menghasilkan energi yang besar, bahkan semakin lama semakin dahsyat. Fokus membuatku bersemangat, berenergi, berkeringat, tetap panas karena membantu aku untuk selalu bergerak. Bergerak melangkah, bergerak lari, bergerak ke arah silau sinar berlian yang memimpinku."

Kita Bisaa!!!

Course Description

This course concentrates on the basic concepts of nuclear physics with emphasis on nuclear structure and radiation interactions with matter. Included: elementary quantum theory; nuclear forces; shell structure of the nucleus; alpha, beta, and gamma radioactive decays; interactions of nuclear radiations (charged particles, gammas, and neutrons) with matter; nuclear reactions; and fission and fusion.

The course is divided into three main sections:

  1. Quantum Mechanics Fundamentals
  2. Nuclear Structure and Nuclear Decays
  3. Interactions in Nuclear Matter and Nuclear Reactions


Course Meeting Times

Lectures: 2 sessions / week, 1.5 hour / session

Course Prerequisites

8.02, 18.02, 22.01


Krane, K.S. Introductory Nuclear Physics. Wiley, 1988.

Liboff, R. L. Introductory Quantum Mechanics. Addison-Wesley, 2003.

Problem Sets

The weekly problem sets are an essential part of the course. Working through these problems is essential to understanding the material.

Problem sets will generally be assigned once every week and will be due the same day in the following week. All problem sets will be posted on the course web site.

Problem set solutions will be posted on the web site following the due date. No problem sets will be accepted after the solutions have been posted.


There will be a two hour mid term and a comprehensive final exam. The final exam will emphasize material from the entire course, and will be a mixture of factual questions and problems.

Term Paper

There is no term paper required for this course.


The final grade for the course will be based on the following:

Weekly Problem Sets 30%
Mid Term Exam 30%
Final Exam 40%
