Hadronic Physics Group (HPG)

The research program of the Hadronic Physics Group focuses on the use of the electromagnetic interaction to probe the structure of nucleons, few-nucleon systems, and complex nuclei.

The Hadronic Physics Group (HPG) conducts medium to high energy nuclear physics experiments in diverse research facilities in the world, including the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), the DESY Laboratory, Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (TJNAF), The Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The group has a leading role in the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.

The main topic of the group is to probe the stricture of protons, neutrons, and other hadrons in order to address a variety of questions, examples of which regard perturbative and/or non-perturbative QCD, the Standard Model of electroweak interaction and models of the early universe.


HPG News and Highlights

Robert P. RedwineProf. Robert P. Redwine received a Distinguished Service Award from the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Society at its recent annual meeting in Pittsburgh, PA. Prof. Redwine was recognized for his generous, dedicated service to the Division of Nuclear Physics in numerous roles spanning more than three decades and, in particular, for his thoughtful leadership of the ad hoc Funding Issues Committee, and the important role that has played in ensuring nuclear science remains a high priority for our nation.
