Empty space in quantum chomodynamics. Animation shows the action density (like
the energy density) from QCD.
Research Activities of Prof. Jerry Gilfoyle
My research is focused on the
experimental program at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator
Laboratory to explore the quark-gluon nature of matter with an excursion into nuclear arms
I have also developed inquiry-based laboratories for
introductory physics and
undergraduate quantum mechanics.
The nuclear physics research is supported by the US Department of Energy (grant DE-FG02-96ER40980).
A Russian nuclear
missile sub is dismantled by the US cooperative threat reduction program.
