Research Grant for Multicampus Project -- The Science of Dense Gluon Matter

Professor Calderon de la Barca Sanchez and Professor Cebra are part of a collaboration, led by UC Berkeley, that will design detectors for the Electron-Ion Collider, a new particle accelerator proposed for the Brookhaven National Laboratory. The EIC is the only major particle accelerator currently planned in the United States. The group aims to use the EIC to study particles called gluons, which hold together other subatomic particles within atomic nuclei. The multicampus project also includes researchers at UCLA and UC Riverside and will collaborate with the Berkeley, Los Alamos and Livermore national laboratories.
