Physics Colloquium: Jefferson Lab Science -- Today and Tomorrow


Jefferson Lab Science -- Today and Tomorrow

Presented by Dr. Robert McKeown, Jefferson Lab

The continuous electron beam accelerator facility at Jefferson Lab, built with advanced superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) technology, provides opportunities to discover fundamental new aspects of the structure of visible matter – protons, neutrons and other bound states, and of the strong interaction, described by the gauge theory Quantum Chromodynamics.  Jefferson Lab's accelerator, in operation since 1995, is unique in the world and is currently undergoing a major upgrade to double its energy.  The upgrade will bring new opportunities, not only in the study of hadronic matter, but also in searches for new physics, such as a suite of experiments to search for massive "dark photons".  In this talk, I will give an overview of Jefferson Lab's current and future science program, including an outlook for the future of the laboratory.
