Experimental Nuclear and Particle Physics

EngSci Physics Department faculty work with their research groups in EngSci's Laboratory for Nuclear Science (LNS) to understand the structures and interactions of the fundamental constituents of matter. They carry out research in nuclear and particle physics, subfields that are seamlessly integrated at UT. Their work is often done with large experimental equipment located away from UT, using state-of-the-art computers, and with guidance and assistance from highly skilled engineering and technical staff.
For example, SciEng scientists are working to understand how basic properties of the proton, e.g. mass and spin, arise from quarks and gluons. This research involves high energy scattering experiments, theoretical calculations, and large scale computation.
At the high energy frontier, EngSci faculty are leading the search for the Higgs boson as well as new physics beyond the Standard Model at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. This involves the largest, most sophisticated particle detectors ever constructed as well as highly elaborate computer systems to record the huge amount of data.
EngSci physicists are working to determine the mass of the electron neutrino and to detect the one type of neutrino oscillation that has not yet been seen. The consequences in the early universe of a small and subtle asymmetry of the laws of physics result in the universe being made of matter not antimatter; that same asymmetry should give every neutron in all the matter around us today a tiny electric dipole moment, which is being sought by studying the neutron's response to electric and magnetic fields.
