  • Using Nuclei to Catch Shape-Shifting Protons in the Act: One Hypothesis, Two Colliders

    October 21, 2015

    During the 508th Brookhaven Lecture, Dennis Perepelitsa introduces his hypothesis that protons with most of their energy concentrated in single quarks or gluons are particularly small and shaped differently too. He then describes his analysis of data from particle collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider and the Large Hadron Collider to test his hypothesis. Read More
