The Canisius community is invited to join PHY104 for the Physics Department Seminar.  On Friday, October 2, David Lawrence, PhD, will present “How to Do a Big Nuclear Physics Experiment.”

Lawrence is a member of the Computational Sciences and Technology Division of the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab), a Department of Energy national lab located in Newport News, VA.

JLab has a superconducting accelerator to produce electron beams to study the dynamics of the subatomic nucleus. Lawrence is part of the GLUEX experiment to search for exotic subatomic particles. He will describe how experiments are proposed, designed and implemented at a national lab.

The seminar will be broadcast remotely on October 2 at 2:10 p.m. For the Zoom invitation, please contact Michael Wood, PhD, chair of the Physics Department, at
