Protons Get Zippier in Neutron-Rich Nuclei

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

A new study carried out at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has confirmed that increasing the number of neutrons as compared to protons in the atom’s nucleus also increases the average momentum of its protons. The nuclear physics result, which has implications for the dynamics of neutron stars, has been published in the journal Nature.

Statement By Jefferson Lab, Brookhaven Lab And The Electron-Ion Collider Users Community On National Academy Of Sciences Electron-Ion Collider Report

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

The following statement is being issued by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and Brookhaven National Laboratory—along with the Electron-Ion Collider User Group—in response to a report issued today by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on the scientific case for a U.S.-based Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). Jefferson Lab and Brookhaven scientists are part of the vibrant community that has come together to tackle the scientific and technological challenges of designing and building a U.S.-based EIC, drawing on the expertise and existing infrastructure at the two labs.

Revealing the Details of Subatomic Particle Interactions

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

Supercomputers have the power to unlock the secrets of subatomic particles that are hidden deep inside everyday matter. But they can’t do it on their own: They require experts to use their knowledge of the theory subatomic to set up the problems to be calculated and provide insight into the results. Raul Briceño has been awarded a DOE Early Career Award to do just that, as he develops and implements a first-of-its-kind universal framework for these studies.

Quarks Feel the Pressure in the Proton

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

Inside every proton in every atom in the universe is a pressure cooker environment that surpasses the atom-crushing heart of a neutron star. That’s according to the first measurement of a mechanical property of subatomic particles, the pressure distribution inside the proton, which was carried out by scientists at the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.

The Weak Side of the Proton

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

A new result from the Q-weak experiment at the Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility provides a precision test of the weak force, one of four fundamental forces in nature. This result, published recently in Nature, also constrains possibilities for new particles and forces beyond our present knowledge.
