The experimental nuclear physics group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst studies a variety of fundamental questions and performs precision measurements to advance our understanding of the origins of matter, the nature of fundamental forces, and the mechanisms by which the building blocks of matter (quarks and leptons) form protons, neutrons and eventually nuclei and atoms.
