The Nuclear Physics group of the Cagliari branch of INFN (the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics) has been carrying out experimental research in the field of nuclear physics since 1989, within a number of international collaborations.
It is composed of 6 staff researchers, plus 5 additional people including post-docs and PhD students.

The main interest of the group is currently the study of ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions, while  the main involvement is in the ALICE and NA60 experiments at CERN.

The group participates in several activities within these experiments, including the study of detectors and associated readout electronics, development of software for data analysis and readout electronics.

The group is also involved in the EEE project, for the study of extremely energetic cosmic ray showers.

In the past the group participated to the following experiments
