Sustained World-Leading Nuclear Science
• The Electro-weak force is an essential tool in the exploration of strongly interacting systems JLab has world-wide unique capabilities - Energy, duty factor, polarization, beam quality Hence: large international Nuclear Physics User community Addressing the most fundamental issues concerning the nature of the strong force: - Nature of quark confinement - Existence and properties of new forms of matter - Exploration of a new paradigm for nuclear structure - Unambiguous determination of the spin and flavor structure of the nucleon and atomic nuclei Searching for physics beyond the Standard Model


• •


The 12 GeV Upgrade Will Enable Breakthrough Research in Four Areas
• The experimental study of the confinement of quarks – one of the outstanding questions for 21st century science – why are quarks never found alone?


Increase knowledge of the fundamental quark-gluon structure of the nuclear building blocks: the proton and neutron


Increase understanding of nuclei in terms of nucleons and the N-N force and the QCD basis for that understanding


Allow precision experiments with sensitivity to new physics beyond the Standard Model

Accelerator Science and Technology Superconducting RF
