2.6: Medium-energy Nuclear Physics

  • Page ID

  • Medium energy nuclear physics is interested in the response of a nucleus to probes at such energies that we can no longer consider nucleons to be elementary particles. Most modern experiments are done by electron scattering, and concentrate on the role of QCD (see below) in nuclei, the structure of mesons in nuclei and other complicated questions.
