       Range Plan – Dec. 2007

•QCD and the Structure of Hadrons
•Phases of Nuclear Matter
•Nuclei: From Structure to Exploding Stars
•In Search of the New Standard Model

    Our group has had significant input
     in community planning for future
    Scientific Themes that Guide our Group
   Fundamental Symmetries
      Establish standard model parameters of particle physics
      Test sensitively for physics beyond the SM
        • These efforts play an important complementary role to the direct
          discoveries anticipated at the LHC

   Confronting QCD at a fundamental level
      Determine the role of quarks, antiquarks & gluons to the internal
       structure and properties of hadrons
      Understand the origin of hadron spin
        • Quark and gluon spin and orbital angular momentum

(G) Mu2e: Charged lepton violation test (to 10-16 BR !)
    Paul Debevec, David Hertzog, Peter Kammel                 Active data taking or design
To answer fundamental questions, requires
 custom equipment. These are built here.

On this campus we are preparing key parts of a new
   neutron EDM measurement with 2x10-28 e-cm
As we have done

Here, the G0
torroid magnet is
being mapped at in
old NPL accelerator
high-bay, prior to
shipping to JLab
