Exploring the Nature of Matter: Jefferson Lab and its plans
Argonne Physics Division Colloquium - 20 Nov 2009

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) is one of the premier facilities for nuclear and hadronic physics in the world. With high luminosity and high polarization continuous wave electron beams, the 6 GeV physics program has produced exciting results during the past decade. Currently the laboratory is executing an upgrade of the accelerator from 6 GeV to 12 GeV: this project was recommended as the top priority in the most recent US nuclear physics long-range plan. The upgrade, which also includes changes to the experimental facilities, will open new avenues of investigation. Beyond this upgrade, Jefferson Lab is preparing the case for a future Electron Ion Collider.
