Nuclear & Particle Physics

Our research interests focus on outstanding questions in our understanding of electromagnetic phenomena of nucleons and few body systems. Topics being investigated include:

  • Electroproduction of strangeness
  • Meson electroproduction
  • Short range correlations
  • Meson exchange currents
  • Internal structure of hadrons including elastic and inelastic form factors
  • Hadron spectroscopy in photoproduction, including cascade physics, hyperon physics, and baryon-antibaryon physics

We conduct experiments at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) in Newport News, Virginia. We serve as spokespeople on a number of experiments that use Jefferson Lab's electron and photon beams to study the internal structure of nuclei and nucleons.
