Michael Vallee ǀ Developing Analysis Software for Jefferson National Laboratory MOLLER Experiment

Michael Vallee ǀ Developing Analysis Software for Jefferson National Laboratory MOLLER Experiment

Editor’s Note: The MOLLER experiment (Measurement of a Lepton-Lepton Electroweak Reaction) at Jefferson National Laboratory (JLab) proposes to measure the parity-violating asymmetry in electron-electron (Møller) scattering. The experiment will rapidly flip the longitudinal polarization of the electron beam, and measure the fractional difference in scattering rate of the beam electrons […]

Grant Merz ǀ Simulating nuclear explosions on neutron stars

Grant Merz ǀ Simulating nuclear explosions on neutron stars

By Grant Merz (B.S. Astrophysics, Honors Tutorial College, Class of 2020) Editor’s Note: Grant worked with Dr. Zachary Meisel and performed simulations of type I X-ray bursts, thermonuclear explosions that occur on the surface of neutron stars, which are dense remnants of stellar explosions.  Grant’s work will identify the impact […]

Daniel Ivory ǀ A Python Pipeline for MDM Images

Daniel Ivory ǀ A Python Pipeline for MDM Images

By Daniel Ivory (B.S. Applied Physics, College of Arts & Sciences, Class of 2020) Editor’s Note: Ohio University researchers obtain astronomical images for both research and class work using the 1.3 meter McGraw-Hill telescope at MDM Observatory on Kitt Peak in Arizona. We process and calibrate these images using an […]

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

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 […]
