Duke University Research Associate Awarded 2014 Prize to Support Research Work with Jefferson Lab
NEWPORT NEWS, VA. – Not many people have designed an entirely new detector system for use in high-precision physics experiments, but Zhihong Ye, a research associate at Duke University, can add his name to that list.
The research grant is one of the projects funded through the JSA Initiatives Fund program, established by Jefferson Science Associates to support programs, initiatives and activities that further the scientific outreach, and promote the science, education and technology missions of Jefferson Lab in ways that complement its basic and applied research focus. Initiatives Fund awards are for those projects that benefit the lab user community and that leverage commitments of others.
