Below is a kind of "time capsule", describing some CNR research projects from the early days of the web:
Each colored dot represents an identified nuclear fragment from a gold-gold collision in a Time Projection Chamber; these results are from a project to improve separation of heavier species, by then-undergraduate Kerry Forsythe.
This device for measuring the spin of neutrons (a polarimeter) has 360 degrees of coverage in scattering azimuth, and was developed by Prof. John Watson.
In this Time Projection Chamber, trajectories of charged nuclear fragments in a magnetic field are reconstructed from a three-dimensional array of more than two million pixels, using software developed by Dr. Marvin Justice.
Profs. Makis Petratos and Mina Katramatou played a major role in the design of this apparatus at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center; it reveals how the spin of the quarks inside a nucleon contribute to the nucleon's spin.
