Professor of Physics

Building 26-453



My current research is concentrated at the Bates Linear Accelerator Center and at the DESY laboratory in Hamburg. At DESY, we are performing the HERMES experiment, which uses scattering of polarized electrons from polarized proton, deuteron, and 3He targets to study the spin structure of protons and neutrons. HERMES has special capabilities to detect hadrons in coincidence with the scattered electron to help define the quarks in the nucleons on which the scattering took place. At Bates we are building the drift chambers for the BLAST detector, which is expected to be complete and taking data in 2001. Along with the stored polarized electron beam at Bates, BLAST will provide a powerful new tool for the study of the structure of nucleons and light nuclei.
