An electron knocks loose a compact version of a quark- antiquark pair that cruises through a nucleus transparent to it.

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 policy. 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.
