Nuclear Physics Seminar

"The Quest for the Origin of the Proton's Sea"

Presented by Paul Reimer, Argonne National Lab

Tuesday, June 21, 2016, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The proton is a composite particle in which the binding force is responsible for the majority of its mass. To understand this structure, the distributions and origins of the quark-antiquark pairs produced by the strong force must be measured. The SeaQuest collaboration is using the Drell-Yan process to elucidate antiquark distributions in the proton and to study the modification of these distributions when the proton is held within a nucleus. Preliminary results based on a fraction of the anticipated final data set will be presented.
