An important element of Jefferson Lab's Strategic Plan is the implementation of a Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) program. The lab began such a program in FY14 and it has already provided a substantial return on the investments made. .
The Laboratory Directed Research and Development at JLab enables the lab to respond to timely scientific and technological opportunities that also support DOE's research and development mission. This program will be a critical tool for directing the lab's forefront scientific research capabilities towards vital, excellent and emerging scientific challenges. The program provides the resources for JLab personnel to make rapid and significant contributions to critical science and technology problems of mission relevance to JLab and the DOE both within JLab's core miss...
What is Labroatory Directed Research and Development?
The DOE laboratories provide the nation a key service by performing R&D in support of DOE’s goals in catalyzing the transformation of the nation’s energy system, securing our leadership in clean energy, maintaining a vibrant scientific and engineering effort, and enhancing nuclear security. The U.S. Congress recognizes that it is important to sustain the creative and innovative vitality of the DOE laboratories. To this end, it has authorized and encouraged them to devote a relatively small portion of their research effort initiatives of their choosing which are relevant to DOE and national security missions. Since 1991, these efforts have been designated as Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD).
A broader des...
Experiment Scheduling and General Information
Radiation Budget Form (pdf)
Interactive beam request form (for contact persons / spokespersons)
One-Page Summaries: Along with the aformentioned documents, spokespersons are also required to upload a one-page scientific summary of their experiment to the Interactive Beam Request Form. The current archive of summaries can be viewed on line at http://www.jlab.org/exp_prog/experiments/summaries/.
Please see the information for the requirements before scheduling can be requested at http://www.jlab.org/user_resources/PFX/NP-PFX/text.html.
You can only request scheduling when construction of all major components of the experiment are completed, as at this stage the experiment layout and components are considered frozen, and any design modifications will require a change...

Prior research measuring protons in nuclei found that protons and neutrons, collectively called nucleons, may pair up briefly inside the nucleus of the atom in short-range correlations. These paired particles are imparted with high momentum in comparison to non-paired nucleons. This new study measured both protons and neutrons and found that in nuclei with more neutrons than protons, a greater fraction of protons pair up, thus giving the protons a higher-average momentum than the neutrons.
The determination of the pressure distribution inside the proton is the first measurement of a mechanical property of a subatomic particle. The measurement found that the proton’s building blocks, quarks, are subjected to a pressure of 100 decillion Pascal (1035) near the center of a proton, which is about 10 times greater than the pressure in the heart of a neutron star.
The weak force is one of the four fundamental forces in our universe, along with gravity, electromagnetism and the strong force. Researchers have made the first experimental determination of the weak charge of the proton, a measure of the precise strength of the weak force’s influence on the proton.
