Professor Puckett will present an invited talk titled “The Future DIS program in Jefferson Lab’s Halls A and C” at the upcoming 26th International Workshop on Deep Inelastic Scattering and Related Subjects, to be held in Kobe, Japan. More details about the conference can be found here.
Current group member and Ph.D. thesis student Richard F. “Freddy” Obrecht will present the preliminary results of his dissertation research at the upcoming 2018 April Meeting of the American Physical Society in Columbus, Ohio. The abstract for the talk can be viewed here.
Professor Puckett has officially joined experiment E12-07-109 in Jefferson Lab’s Hall A as a co-spokesperson. The experiment will measure the proton’s electromagnetic form factor ratio μp GEp/GMp using the polarization transfer method up to a momentum transfer Q2 = 12 (GeV/c)2. Professor Puckett was invited to become a spokesperson as a result of his expertise in the polarization transfer method and his previous and intended contributions to the successful completion of the experiment.
