USD Experimental Nuclear & Astroparticle Physics
The Experimental Nuclear and Astroparticle Physics research group at the University of South Dakota conducts research in deep underground, low background experiments. We are actively involved in several major International experiments as well as leading several local R&D experiments and activities. Our group performs experimental nuclear physics experiments, background measurements, simulations, material science, and more. Several of our projects are conducted underground at the Sanford Underground Laboratory at Homestake in Lead, SD. Please visit our research page to learn more.


Our group frequently has openings for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral research associates. Please contact dongming.mei@usd.edu if interested.
