To aid in the proper disposal of business sensitive or other restricted-use JSA or Jefferson Lab documents, secure shredding collection boxes are located in CEBAF Center and the Support Service Center. A contracted service, Shred-it, visits the lab monthly, gathers all the materials in the collection boxes and then shreds all the materials. The scheduled visits for the next several months will be on Wednesdays:
The collection boxes in CEBAF Center are located in the Event Services hallway, Room L109, adjacent to the reception desk area. Work-related documents may be put in these collection boxes Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The collection boxes in the SSC are located in Room 71. See Mike Lewellen Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for access to this room.
The students' activities, from a broad perspective, will be based on a weekly program. From Monday through Friday the students will work on their specified project roughly from 9 am until 5 pm with an hour for lunch. During this period each student will interact with the project mentor and the other students that may be in the research group.
As mentioned in the JLab Winter Weather Policy, all members of the Jefferson Lab community can register to receive information about severe weather that may impact the laboratory and any updates to the lab's operating status via the Site Wide Alert system. These messages could include severe weather advisories, laboratory closing and delayed opening notices and other types of emergency messages. Once registered, these alerts will be sent right to your phone as either a text message, a voice message, or both.
To register, you may simply add your cell or home phone numbers to the Mass Notification section of your JList Contact Phone Numbers, available at this link (Note: the JList application may only be accessed on-site.). Click the "Edit My Info" link at the bottom of the screen to make ...
Media invited to attend talks and panel discussions of new and emerging applications of Jefferson Lab’s accelerator technology
What: Accelerators: Driving Applications for Society
Jefferson Lab's technology stewardship event offers a unique opportunity to hear the many ways that accelerators, originally developed for research, can now be used to address national and international priorities, including Environmental Cleanup, Advanced Materials for Industrial Applications, Medicine and Health, Alternative Energy, and National and Homeland Security.
Interactive panel discussions in three key areas – Accelerators in Medicine and Health, Accelerating Environmental Cleanup, and Emerging Applications of Accelerator Technology – will engage top experts from industry, universities, and from the entrepreneur...
While the proton is most simply described as a bound state of three quarks (2 up and 1 down), a more complete description includes a sea of gluons and virtual quark/anti-quark pairs arising from interactions between the three quarks. For instance, strange quark/anti-quark pairs are present in this quark sea even though the proton has, on average, no overall strangeness. The effect of this intrinsic strangeness on the charge and magnetism of the proton can be precisely studied by using the weak interaction (Z-boson exchange) as a probe. While the weak force is normally too slight to be detected alongside the dominant electromagnetic force, the weak interaction is required in any process which violates parity symmetry.
Researchers at Jefferson Lab and elsewhere have therefore turned to high precision measurements of the parity-violating ...

As we approach winter, it is time to review the Jefferson Lab winter weather policy. Our goal is to balance safety with our obligations to manage an active user facility and nuclear physics research and development center and communicate these decisions to staff and users in a timely manner.
The JSA Emergency Management Team (EMT), led by Mary Logue, associate director of ESH&Q, is responsible for monitoring the weather and activating the EMT when adverse conditions are observed or forecast. The EMT will recommend to the COO the appropriate operating status as described in the following table. Th...
New JLUO Chair Has Active Program, Long Leadership History at Jefferson Lab
Julie Roche, the 2018-2019 Jefferson Lab User Organization (JLUO) chair, wants to know how subatomic matter organizes itself, what phenomena emerge from that organization and whether or not scientists fully understand the fundamental interactions that are basic to the structure of matter.
In pursuit of answers, Roche came to work at the lab in 1997. A native of Clermont-Ferrand, France, Roche had been a doctoral student studying in Paris when she first heard about the new Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF). In 1999, she eagerly applied for and was hired for a postdoctoral position at the lab—a position that she held for six years.
“I came to the U.S. specifically to work at Jefferson Lab,” she says. “The lab was ...

The Lab shutdown begins Friday, December 21, 2018 at 5 p.m. The Lab will reopen on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. During this period the Lab will be closed. As a reminder, December 24, 25, 31, and January 1, are designated as holidays. December 26, 27, and 28 can be taken as vacation days or as Leave Without Pay (LWOP). The LWOP option is available only during the Lab shutdown. For those employees who elect LWOP, they must adhere to the guidelines detailed below. Employees are responsible for charging time to the leave codes as appropriate.
Exempt employees who are on LWOP cannot be on the premises during the shutdown and are not authorized to work during this time.
Non-exempt employees who elect LWOP should only charge actual hours worked to their time sheets.

Jefferson Lab’s Scientific and Technical Information Manager Credits Career to Eclectic Experiences and Interests
Kim Edwards, daughter of an USAF airman and Japanese mother, travelled often by car.
“Every time we changed duty stations, we drove from Point A to Point B, even if Point B was an airport to take us across an ocean,” Edwards remembered.
There was a something special about these coast-to-coast car travels, though. Her father, an admirer of natural science museums, would stop at every museum from Point A to Point B.
“Every podunk, obscure museum, we’d stop,” Edwards said, laughing. “My dad would stand in front of an artifact and stare for long minutes.”
Edwards developed an appreciation for science and the preservation of its ever-advancing pursuit of knowledge. Toda...
