CNR Picture Gallery

This page is a kind of "time capsule", describing some CNR research projects posted on our original website. These projects (except for the link at the very bottom of this page) all date from the mid-1990s.

pid_au250_icon Each colored dot represents an identified nuclear fragment from a gold-gold collision in a Time Projection Chamber; these results are from a project to improve separation of heavier species, by then-undergraduate Kerry Forsythe.
arc_movie_icon   This hand-cranked movie of a simulated nucleus-nucleus collision was generated by Dr. David Kahana while he was a postdoctoral fellow at the CNR.
npolarimeter_icon This device for measuring the spin of neutrons (a polarimeter) has 360 degrees of coverage in scattering azimuth, and was developed by Prof. John Watson.
IMAGE: eos_tracks_icon In this Time Projection Chamber, trajectories of charged nuclear fragments in a magnetic field are reconstructed from a three-dimensional array of more than two million pixels, using software developed by Dr. Marvin Justice.
e154_icon Prof. Makis Petratos played a major role in the design of this apparatus at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center; it reveals how the spin of the quarks inside a nucleon contribute to the nucleon's spin.

To see an example related to a more recent CNR project (the STAR experiment at Brookhaven National Lab), you may view a rotating 3-D event display of a gold-gold collision at ultra-relativistic energies.
