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 […]

High School Students ‘Adopt’ OHIO Physicists and Alumni

Dr. Gabriela Popa

“My name is Alena and I am in your adopted physics class. Most of the things in your profile description I didn’t understand very well, but I wanted to ask, how do you deform a nucleus and how would you study such a thing? Also, how do you use physics […]

Physicists Uncover Secrets of the Weak Force

Julie Roche and Paul King

Ohio University Physics & Astronomy Associate Professor Julie Roche and Research Assistant Professor Paul King contributed to a 12-year collaborative effort of more than 100 scientists, in an experiment termed “Q-weak,” to provide a precision test of the weak force, one of four fundamental forces in nature. The group’s breakthrough […]
