William Eshbaugh ǀ ‘Testing HV dividers for experiment E12-13-010 at Jefferson National Lab

By William Eshbaugh (B.S. Applied Physics, College of Arts & Sciences, Class of 2020) Editor’s Note: Experiment E12-13-010 at Jefferson  National Laboratory will measure the probability of an electron inducing the radiation of a photon by a proton in kinematic regimes previously unexplored. To do so, a new detector is […]

Miranda Carver ǀ Investigating the Decay of the f1(1285) Meson using the CLAS Detector

L to R: Ohio University students Miranda Carver, Joseph Rowley, Utsav Shrestha, Dr. Kenneth Hicks, and Taya Chetry in front of the CLAS12 detector at Jefferson National Laboratory

By Miranda Carver (B.S. Astrophysics, College of Arts & Sciences, Class of 2020) The meson is a particle made from one quark and one antiquark.  The strong force between quarks allows mesons with different masses to exist, each with unique quantum numbers.  The f1(1285) meson has a mass of 1285 […]
