    JSA Names Charles Perdrisat and Charles Sinclair as Co-Recipients of its 2017 Outstanding Nuclear Physicist Prize

    Washington, DC – Jefferson Science Associates, LLC, announced today that Charles Perdrisat and Charles Sinclair are the recipients of the 2017 Outstanding Nuclear Physicist Prize.

    Award citation: The 2017 JSA Outstanding Nuclear Physicist Award is jointly awarded to Charles Perdrisat for his pioneering implementation of the polarization transfer technique to determine proton elastic form factors, and to Charles Sinclair for his crucial development of polarized electron beam technology, which made such measurements, and many others, possible.

    The award will be presented to Perdrisat and Sinclair during a ceremony to be held at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) in Newport News, Virginia.

    First Result from Jefferson Lab's Upgraded CEBAF

    NEWPORT NEWS, VA – The first experimental result has been published from the newly upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at the U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. The result demonstrates the feasibility of detecting a potential new form of matter to study why quarks are never found in isolation.

    The 12 GeV CEBAF Upgrade is a $338 million, multi-year project to triple CEBAF's original operational energy for investigating the quark structure of the atom's nucleus. The majority of the upgrade is complete and will be finishing up in 2017.

    Students Use Jefferson Lab Website to Prep For Annual Tests

    Thousands of Virginia students are expected to flock to Jefferson Lab's Science Education website in the coming weeks – just as they have done each spring for the past several years – as they prepare for the Virginia Standards of Learning examinations.

    Jefferson Lab’s website hosts the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) Science and Math Practice Tests. Categories include the Math tests for grades 2 - 8, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry, and the Science tests for grades 3, 5 and 8, Biology, Chemistry, and Earth Science. The SOL practice tests include SOL questions and answers provided by the Virginia Department of Education – from as recent as spring 2015, and going back to 2000.

    Jefferson Lab’s Summer Science Camp for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Youth Announced

    NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Science Education staff at Jefferson Lab will conduct a Science Camp for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Youth Aug. 7-11, 2017. The program is designed to meet the needs of rising fourth- through eighth-grade students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

    “This is the program’s fourth year and the response to it has been very positive,” says Brita Hampton, education administrator and camp coordinator.  “Our Deaf Science Camp gives kids the opportunity to meet other deaf and hard-of-hearing kids from around the state, and they have fun doing science together.  Learning in a barrier-free environment is very rewarding for the students!

    Physicists Move Closer to Listening In on Sub-Atomic Conversation

    Much like two friendly neighbors getting together to chat over a cup of coffee, the minuscule particles in our sub-atomic world also come together to engage in a kind of conversation. Now, nuclear scientists are developing tools to allow them to listen in on the particles’ gab fests and learn more about how they stick together to build our visible universe.

    Jozef Dudek is a staff scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Jefferson Lab and an assistant professor of physics at the College of William & Mary. He and his colleagues recently carried out the first complex calculations of a particle called the sigma and published the result in Physical Review Letters in January.

    Jefferson Lab Accomplishes Critical Milestones Toward Completion of 12 GeV Upgrade

    NEWPORT NEWS, VA – The Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at the U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has achieved two major commissioning milestones and is now entering the final stretch of work to conclude its first major upgrade.

    Recently, the CEBAF accelerator delivered electron beams into two of its experimental halls, Halls B and C, at energies not possible before the upgrade for commissioning of the experimental equipment currently in each hall. Data were recorded in each hall, which were then confirmed to be of sufficient quality to allow for particle identification, a primary indicator of good detector operation.

    One hundred and three months

    When, in January 2016, I told Secretary Moniz that I would be standing down, he pointed out that he had done 100 months as director of Bates Laboratory at MIT and that I should at least match that. Coincidentally that would have also taken me to the end of Moniz’s term as Secretary of Energy. In fact, when I step down at the end of March it will have been 103 months at the helm, a very exciting period of my life.

    I started my term as Director of Jefferson Lab on September 2, 2008.
