Named a 2011 Distinguished Scholar at Kent State University, Declan Keane, a physics faculty member since 1988, is a prominent figure in experimental nuclear science. Keane’s research group made worldwide headlines in 2010 after their discovery of the heaviest antimatter nucleus was published in the journal Science. This antinucleus was the first to contain a type of quark not found in ordinary nuclei or antinuclei, and the discovery opens a completely new region of the three‐dimensional generalization of the Periodic Table of elements. The published measurements have direct implications for ongoing searches for new phenomena in the cosmos.
