From Fundamental Nuclear Physics to Cancer Instrumentation: Science at Jefferson Lab
Presented by Cynthia (Thia) Keppel, Hampton University
The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) underwent a major upgrade, doubling the beam energy to 12 GeV and substantially upgrading the associated experimental equipment. Experiments leveraging this upgrade have been underway for a couple years now, and many new results are on the near term horizon. An overview of this program and first data will be presented. In addition, some applications of detector technology from the fundamental nuclear physics program to medical instrumentation will be discussed.
