Experimental Nuclear Physics Group

Department of Physics

Old Dominion University

Research of the Group:

Our research has two distinct, but related goals: to improve our knowledge of the internal structure and the interactions of nucleons and other hadrons, and to better understand the nucleonic structure of the deuteron and heavier nuclei. To pursue these goals, we mostly use electrons and photons as probes, which are both well-understood and interact weakly enough to probe the whole nuclear volume. Most of our experiments are conducted at the nearby Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab or Jefferson Lab), where we have made important contributions to the equipment, software and experiments in Halls A, B, C and D over the past two and a half decades. We are now (co-)spokespersons of sixteen 12 GeV experiments, and we continue to play a major role in developing the instrumentation necessary to support these experiments. Looking towards the future, our group is playing a leading role in preparations for the future Electron Ion Collider in Brookhaven, NY.
For more information, see also our Graduate Student Brochure published by the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Society. Here is a video introduction to our group and here is a presentation on the connection between Jefferson Lab and our group. Design view of CLAS12
