Research

The Nuclear Physics Experimental group has a variety of research interest focused on outstanding questions in our understanding of electromagnetic phenomena of nucleons and few body systems. The topics being investigated include:

  • electroproduction of strangeness
  • meson electroproduction
  • short range correlations
  • meson exchange currents
  • internal structure of hadrons including elastic and inelastic form factors
  • hadron spectroscopy in photoproduction, including cascade physics, hyperon physics, and baryon-antibaryon physics
