  • After a brief introduction to the CEBAF accelerator, several recent results of the research programs in Hall A are discussed. All of those address the transition region between the meson-baryon and quark-gluon description of nuclear matter. Finally, the plans for upgrading CEBAF to 12 GeV are presented and the instrumentation under design for Hall A to carry out that research program is discussed.
  • I consider the beginning to modern particle physics to be in 1932--33, when James Chadwick discovered the neutron at Cambridge, England, and Carl Anderson discovered the positron in Pasadena, California. I leave out the discoveries of the electron by J. J. Thomson, the nucleus and the proton by Ernest Rutherford, as well as the photon introduced by Albert Einstein and the neutrino as hypothesized by Wolfgang Pauli, as having occurred before my time.'' I was thus able to follow -- and sometimes participate in -- all the developments of modern particle physics. The story I will tell is as themore » unfolding of the field looked; to me -- an experimental particle physicists. As with Rashomon, this is as I see it. To get a different point of view, and no doubt there are many, you need different observer. One might ask, what did I know about physics in the 1930s, anyway It so happens that I did hear abut Chadwick's discovery at the time, mainly because my brother Maurice was working with him in 1934 on the photo-disintegration of the deuteron, and on the first good measurement of the neutron mass. I will concentrate on the thirty years, 1930 to 1960 which includes Dick Dalitz' important early contributions. I will then skip most of the next thirty years for lack of time, and end up with the study of the Z{sup 0} in e{sup +}e{sup {minus}} annihilation. For more details, and explicit references to published papers, I will refer the reader to a recent book by Robert Cahn and myself.« less
  • The supply and demand of electric power in the Northeast, Northwest, and Southwest regions are projected for the 1980s. While the three rely on oil, hydroelectric power, and natural gas, respectively, oil is the common thread used for discussion at the National Governors' Association panel from which the comments are drawn. A summary of policies and issues presented at conference workshops includes a statement of the problems and recommendations for resolving them. If electric power demand continues at the present growth rate and construction continues to be constrained, power shortages could develop and oil consumption could increase during this decade.more » (DCK)« less
  • Some highlights are presented from the physics that has been studied using metallic superlattices as model systems. These include unique structural aspects, anomalous elastic constants, electron localization, matching of superconducting vortices to the superlattice periodicity, dimensional crossover and development of magnon bands in magnetic superlattices. The results illustrate that these model systems can be tuned to study physics at different length scales. 24 refs., 6 figs.
