nuclear physics, atomic physics, nucleonics(noun)
the branch of physics that studies the internal structure of atomic nuclei
That branch of physics which studies the structure of and phenomena observed in atomic nuclei.
The branch of physics that studies the nucleus of the atom, its internal structure and components.
Nuclear physics is the field of physics that studies the constituents and interactions of atomic nuclei. The most commonly known applications of nuclear physics are nuclear power generation and nuclear weapons technology, but the research has provided application in many fields, including those in nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging, ion implantation in materials engineering, and radiocarbon dating in geology and archaeology. The field of particle physics evolved out of nuclear physics and is typically taught in close association with nuclear physics.
U.S. National Library of Medicine
The study of the characteristics, behavior, and internal structures of the atomic nucleus and its interactions with other nuclei. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
