Welcome to our research labs To explore the universe, to find something new, to understand what we did not understand before. That is the nature of physics, that is the nature of research.
Dr. Damon Spayde
performs research in experimental nuclear physics. He is interested in exploring the structure of the universe at extremely short length scales, smaller than the nucleus of an atom. This research takes him to accelerator facilities such as the
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility where he is involved in experiments to measure magnetic properties of the proton (
G0) and fundamental constants of the Standard Model (

Dr. Todd Tinsley
is a theorist working in the area of elementary particles and fields. He studies how the most fundamental constituents of matter behave in the presence of intense electromagnetic fields. The strength of these fields can only be found in the most exotic astrophysical phenomena (e.g. supernovae, magnetars) and in laboratories for the briefest of moments (~10-15s).
