Center for Theoretical and Computational Physics
This week, members of the Jefferson Lab Theory Center and Experimental Physics Division joined users in a dedicated workshop on γZ box corrections to parity-violating electron scattering. The workshop saw significant progress made towards a consensus about the size of the γZ corrections to the Q-weak experiment and, particularly, their uncertainties. These corrections are vital for understanding whether the Q-weak experiment is to achieve its goal of measuring the fundamental weak mixing angle of the Standard Model, sin2ΘW, to an unprecedented high level of precision.
The central machine shop has completed the following work items:
The central machine shop is in the process of:
Overall, the shop has completed 103 work requests of various machining tasks for all areas of the lab.

Notable Event Notice: Dec. 16 Failure to Comply with Posted Signs
This area had been posted on Friday, Dec. 13, as the Superconducting Radiofrequency (SRF) group was scheduled to begin testing a cavity with a 1 Watt amplifier over the weekend. The contractors performed a walk-through of the site on Friday; however, they failed to take a look at this particular area.
Signs are posted to communicate important safety information. Please read and obey posted signs.
