Nuclear Physics Seminars at BNL

The Electron-Ion Collider, being constructed at the Brookhaven National Lab, is the “dream machine” for nuclear physics studies for the upcoming decades. The diverse capability in the accelerator design offers physicists a unique opportunity to study quark and gluon structures within nucleons and nuclei. Furthermore, the production and detection of the rare isotopes is a possibility.

In this seminar, we will dive into an example of many creative ways to use the EIC: Probing the proton’s identity (baryon number), and determining who carries the baryon number within its wavefunction: gluon? quark? Both?
