Narbe Kalantarians - Virginia Union University
A research program in subatomic physics has been initiated at Virginia Union University (VUU). This RIA has allowed for the PI to establish a productive research program in experimental intermediate energy physics, in connection with nearby Jefferson Lab that engages VUU undergraduates in STEM in physics and engineering research. The research activities have included the development of a slow controls read-out system for an experiment at Jefferson Lab and analysis of nuclear cross-sections. This award has helped elevate the recently reestablished VUU physics program. This poster talk will highlight the accomplishments of the program as well as plans for the future of subatomic physics at VUU.
