Bruce Barrett
Professor Emeritus of Physics
Affiliate Professor of Physics, University of WashingtonSeattle

Office: PAS 370
Education:
Ph.D., 1967, Stanford University
Fields of Study:
Research Interests:
Microscopic Theory of Nuclei Structure: Creating a unified theory of the properties of atomic nuclei, starting from the fundamental interactions among the nucleons and using nuclear manybody theory to calculate these properties. In this regard, we have developed the ab initio No Core Shell Model approach, which has been successful in describing the properties of light nuclei, i.e., up to mass A=16. This approach is now being extended to heavier mass nuclei.
