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 […]
