Prof. Grant O'Rielly of the Physics Department has been awarded $249,695 from the National Science Foundation (NSF award IIA #1261150) to engage undergraduate students from UMass Dartmouth and other regional colleges in his research program at the MAX-lab research facility in Lund, Sweden for the next three years. At least six students will spend 10-weeks each summer working with international researchers at MAX-lab involved in nuclear physics experiments studying the subatomic process know as pion photoproduction, and will have the opportunity to present the results of their work at national physics conferences. The results from these measurements will be compared with theoretical predictions, and will help improve the current description we have for the fundamental nature of matter.
